As part of the National Anti-Bullying Week, students at Fairfield High School (FHS) took part in a range of activities.
The week was launched with ‘Odd Socks Day’, as part of the Anti Bullying Alliance’s initiative to help raise awareness of bullying and to show everyone’s creativity and individuality. As always, staff and students went the extra mile to recognise this important day.
During the week students received assemblies and sessions focused on baiting, banter and cyberbullying, the long term consequences of bullying and the ways in which to receive help.
FHS also shared a list of books in the school’s Library for students to access which they may find interesting and/or to expand their knowledge.
In addition, over the past few weeks students have been invited to take part in a well-being survey related to bullying which will allow FHS to review and improve what it is already doing to prevent and respond to bullying incidents.
Dr Jennifer Ross, teacher of Science and organiser of these Anti-Bullying Week initiatives explains:
“As always, Team Fairfield has been pulling out all the stops in order to raise awareness of this very important week.
“Bullying can effect many young people on many different levels, so we wanted to ensure we educated and promoted the cause as widely as possible. Together we stand united to stamp out bullying.”
