We want to thank all of the parents and family members who joined us today for our anti-bullying assembly this Tuesday afternoon. The event was expertly hosted by Ella and Connor, our two grade 6 MCs for the event. They wove together a collection of videos, presentations and messages that all resonated with our theme this year: STAND UP. We are and have been encouraging students to stand up against mean actions, words, and bullying, both as victims but also as bystanders. The actions and words of bystanders are very important in dealing with bullying and have a major impact on preventing it.
We thank our students, including our Peacebuilders, for their good work and participation in both the assembly and Anti-bullying Week activities. Thanks to Ms Nisbet, Ms Sloan, Ms Brennan, Ms Iaderosa, Ms Akl, and Ms Draper for their work in organizing the assembly and for their awesome leadership with our students.
