Anti-Bullying Week 2018: ‘We Choose Respect!’
Mrs A. Theodoulou: IT & Computing, writes:
Last week Stanborough marked National Anti-Bullying week across the school.
The Anti-Bullying Alliance ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ took place between the 12th and 16th November 2018. The theme this year was “We Choose Respect” with the following key aims:
- The definition of respect
- That bullying is a behaviour choice
- That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
- That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online
During Anti-Bullying Week, students were involved in a variety of different activities in IT & Computing lessons such as an anti-bullying video and creating anti-bullying badges. They also took part in house events such as the Wristband Challenge where Year 7 students were given wristbands to support the Anti-Bullying campaign around the school. They had to collect stamps each day, whilst wearing their Anti-Bullying wristband. An Anti-Bullying quiz was also carried out during the week in tutor time.
The house competition results are:
|Joint 5th||Ashridge and Brocket|
|Year 7 Wristband Challenge|
|Joint 3rd||Ashridge and Sopwell|
Thank you to all the students and staff that participated in the event. This event was a great success and I hope it has sent an important message out to all students.
