Our Student Council got together to think about how to prevent bullying behaviour in our school and about ways to help and support pupils who have been bullied and who may have bullied. They decided upon a poster competition to raise awareness and get everyone talking about this serious issue.
At the student council meetings this year we have looked at many subjects such as Covid, coping with Covid, Internet safety and cyberbullying. We made posters on what things we like to do to distract us from Covid. We included things like playing sports, going out in the fresh air and playing on our Xbox. We sent our suggestions and photos of our projects to Dr. Tony Holohan who was very impressed with what he saw. On cyberbullying, we went over the basics such as Stop Block and Tell, what platforms it is found on and we made posters on Internet safety. We hope everyone has a safe and peaceful Christmas.
