Student guest blog on Anti-Bullying Week 2018
Published: 11th December 2018
Mo, a Digital Leader from Acklam Grange School, wrote us a blog about what his school did for Anti-Bullying Week 2018.
For Anti-Bullying Week 2018, our team organised an open mic-day. On the open mic-day we sold cakes, popcorn, drinks and we took donations for stickers. We also had a photo-booth!
We sang the ‘Choose Respect’ song and created a video. This was shown to staff on the Monday in their morning briefing to promote Anti-Bullying Week.
During the open mic-day we had student performances including singing, dancing and drumming. We had students from all year groups performing and we even had a teacher perform who made the audience go ‘WOW!’
The audience were superb and made it easy for the performers as they encouraged them and made them feel even more confident. The audience and wonderful teaching staff contributed well and our Head Teacher was there to help calm the audience down if they were getting too wild (in a good way)! It was great for students and they are still talking about the performers and how fantastic Anti-Bullying Week was!
On top of this the school teaching staff designed a lesson about respecting yourself, others and the community, and students made a poster about respect. They also spoke about how to apply respect on a daily basis.
Our aims for Anti-Bullying Week were to make the week enjoyable and to show that people should treat others the way they want to be treated.
