Anti-Bullying Campaign

Our School Anti-Bullying Campaign – Respect

About the project

Every year our students are involved in an anti-bullying campaign. The students are actively involved in hands on activities to promote respect for one another and ability to recognise the behaviours that can lead to bullying. This year the theme for our anti-bullying campaign is respect. The students will participate in a variety of activities based on the theme of respect. The activities will be structured and implemented over a six to eight week period beginning on Monday September 5th 2016.
