Our recent Anti-bullying Week of Action was more than just a week of activities; it was a testament to the kind of community we’re nurturing, one that stands together against bullying and champions kindness.
“We are incredibly proud of our students for not just participating actively but also for embodying the values of compassion, understanding and unity,” said Dany Alarab, Leader of Culture & Compliance.
Throughout the week, students were involved in a series of activities which included identifying bullying, creating a definition, combatting bullying and spreading kindness.
“We started the week with sessions that educated students on the different forms of bullying – be it verbal, physical, or online,” Dany said.
Through workshops and interactive discussions, students gained tools and strategies on how to stand up against bullying, support victims, and promote a safe, inclusive environment.
“In a collective effort, students collaborated to craft a school-specific definition of bullying, ensuring every student understands and is aware of what constitutes as bullying at our school. We also engaged our students in activities that celebrated kindness, empathy, and understanding, highlighting the power of positive actions.”
The week culminated in a vibrant Activity Day, allowing students to showcase their creativity and commitment to the anti-bullying cause.
“Our young artists and storytellers produced an anti-bullying film aimed at educating other schools and the wider community about the ramifications of bullying and how to address it. They also designed collages that narrate stories of unity, friendship, and resilience.”
