Anti-Bullying Week Oct 2019
The theme this year had 3 areas of focus- Let’s Talk. We are encouraging our students to talk to someone, be it a parent, friend or teacher if they are feeling down about something or if they are suffering at the hands of a bully.
Video clips were shown on 3 mornings with a number of questions/discussion openers attached
Students & Staff were thanked for their involvement in this year’s Anti Bullying Week excellently organised once again by the team.
