Anti-Bullying Week 2017

November 22,2017

We have had a very positive Anti-Bullying Week, in which our pastoral focus has been on ways to further develop an inclusive, caring and supportive environment for all.

It was particularly pleasing the personal connection that students have made with the week’s activities.

An inspiring example of this has been the response of our Grade 6 and 7 English Phase 5 and 6 group, who are currently reading the book ‘Face’ by British-Jamaican author Benjamin Zephaniah. The story concerns a teenage boy who suffers facial injuries in a joyriding accident, and how he subsequently adjusts to his new circumstances, including stares, taunts and bullying. 

When Head of EAL Andreas Nicolaou suggested the students make a connection between ‘Face’ and the motto of this year’s Anti-Bullying Week ‘All different all equal’, the students enthusiastically rose to the occasion. On their own initiative, they developed group presentations linking ‘Face’ with Anti-Bullying Week through the themes of ‘Respect’, ‘Beauty is on the Inside’ and ‘Treat people as you want to be treated’, and these presentations will soon be performed at MYP and PYP Assemblies.

 

The many positive messages which have come out of our Anti-Bullying initiatives apply perennially in school life, and our students deserve praise for the way in which they so constructively engaged with this week’s pastoral activities.
