Anti-Bullying Week 2021: One Kind Word

Anti-Bullying Week 2021 was coordinated in England and Wales by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. It took place from 15 to 19 November 2021 and had the theme ‘One Kind Word’.

At Arts & Media School, we started the week with assemblies on the theme of ‘One Kind Word’ and then students took part in Odd Socks Day towards the end of the week.

We have also put out a Google form for students and staff to offer a kind word to any other students or staff members.

See below for the messages of kindness:

Mr CastilloSTAFFTo Tula, Maria, Larissa & Liana. 9E
Not only they are exceptional students, but they consistently check their peers' mood and mine too, noticing when something is off and suporting them and me to get the best day possible.
When you have one of those days..., you only need to seek for them and they have a nice word, a smile or a positive comment that suddenly helps you share light to your day.
We are a big family.

KaioYear 10For people who get bullied, don't let the bullies get to you I have been through that same situation so I understand how you all feel. The most Important thing to do Is to tell a member of staff or a parent. We have to treat people equally. we are all humans lets start acting like one.Bullying is a word that brings bad things but everyone has power to change that.
