VIDEO: School pen anti-bullying song

Waiting for Video...

Caring youngsters from Willoughton Primary School have been getting creative during national Anti-Bullying Week.

The students took part in a range of activities throughout the week, including designing T-shirts and making pledges.

And some of them even penned and performed their very own song.

“Anti-bullying week is a great opportunity to reinforce the values we live by day to day in school,” said the school’s business manager Tina Dean.

“It is a little reminder about respecting each other and how we should treat each other and consider other people’s feelings.”

The school council decided to design anti-bullying posters to display around the school, but some of them were so good that Tina decided to have them made into T-shirts.

“It meant they could wear them around school, so they had something to be proud off,” said Tina.

“And the best three were given prizes in a special assembly at the end of the week.”

Another class wrote and performed a song, while another group wrote pledges to be displayed in the school that they would take personal responsibility for.

Established by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, this year’s Anti-Bullying Week focused on cyber bullying.

A major new study commissioned by McAfee and the Anti-Bullying Alliance, revealed most of children’s internet use takes place away from the watchful eye of a parent.

The findings were revealed during Anti-Bullying Week to raise awareness of the problem.
