Let’s introduce ourselves for all the new staff and students…
Welcome to the Anti-Bullying Blog run by the Anti-Bullying Ambassador Team here at AGGS.
The team currently consists of Year 10s and two Year 13s and we organise events at school and aim to make the school environment friendly and safe by tackling bullying. Soon, we will be starting Anti-Bullying Drop-In Sessions for all years. Our main goal this year is to create a scheme in school where students can feel comfortable discussing issues with the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors; don’t worry, we don’t bite!
Every year, we celebrate Anti-Bullying Week (12th-16th November) and the theme this year has been released. The theme is ‘Choose Respect’.
“Following a consultation with over 800 children, teachers and members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, it emerged that a top priority was showing that bullying is a behaviour choice, and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school, in their homes and communities, and online.”- Anti-Bullying Alliance
During this week, we hope students understand the definition of respect and bullying and to always consider other people’s feelings. Remember, before you speak, is it true, kind, helpful or necessary?
We hope you look forward to what the team are organising for Anti-Bullying Week 2018!
And remember, if you need someone to talk to you or seek advice from, look out for our Diana Award badges and don’t be afraid to come up to us.
