Kindness shines through during Anti-bullying week
The Senior School marked Anti-Bullying Week with a special assembly, dedicated form time and an inspiring One Kind Word activity.
Anti-Bullying Week took place from 15th to 19th November and Senior Prefects delivered an assembly introducing the initiative to the rest of the school. During the assembly, they spoke about the importance of being positive and how one kind word can brighten someone’s day.
After playing a short video from The Anti-Bullying Alliance, the Senior Prefects asked if pupils could start a chain reaction or ripple effect of kindness at SGS and they reminded pupils of who to contact if they encounter any bullying.
In First Year form periods, Senior Prefects visited classrooms to speak more about the issue. They explained what bullying is, how it can happen, asked five key kindness questions and talked through a number of scenarios and how we could spread kindness.
Pupils were then offered the chance to write a kind word or phrase on a heart-shaped note – similar to the notes that covered up a defaced mural of footballer Marcus Rashford – that would be shared with the school community via a window display in the Library.
