As we are focusing on persuasive writing this month, I received a letter from Emily Tierney in Ms. Begg’s class asking that I put the following website link onto the school blog- http://www.antibullyingireland.com/
Click on the image above to access it. She felt that it might help children who are being bullied. Well done Emily on a very good idea.
Third and Fourth classes worked together to show the ABC of friendship in St. Kevin’s. Can you tell what words they are spelling out? Have you got any other words that are similar?
Our anti-bullying month started in the school today. Assemblies were held for all classes to inform the children of the purpose of the month. Each child was given an anti-bullying code badge (ABC) and are asked to wear it for the month of November. Throughout the month, teachers will be doing lessons on physical, verbal, social and cyber bullying.
Our anti-bullying code is:
- Stay calm & look confident
- Speak loudly and firmly
- Don’t be mean back
- Get away
- Tell an adult
Keep an eye on the school blog for more anti-bullying posts.
