So what did we do last year?
We have worked really hard in planning and supporting our school’s very successful Anti-Bullying Week. We discussed how we wanted it to work and what messages we felt were important. We helped lead the opening assembly and introduced the school to the theme; Change Starts With Us. During the week we were supported by Mrs Nugent and sold wristbands, at break-time to raise money for The Anti-Bullying Alliance Charity.

Bully’s Paradise by the Firehorse Theatre Company was enjoyed by all of our school and really helped us to understand the impact that bullying can have. Here are just a few of the things children had to say about it.
“It was fun! Some people went onto the stage and got a wristband that says, change starts with us”
“It was helpful because it told us how to stand up to bullies. If you see someone being bullied, you can help them”
“We loved the production especially when we got to shout action for the start of each scene. It made me laugh when they were changing their hats.”
“We liked it because it showed an example of what it could be like. The Bully did it several times on purpose.”
“We learnt that bullies don’t always know what it feels like to be bullied. It should stop because people feel upset. It can stop them wanting to go to school.”
“It showed us that if you are bullying someone it can affect their mental health. They can feel lost inside.”
