Children got to learn about treating others with respect as part of Anti-Bullying Week.
Pupils and teachers at Ursuline Preparatory School, Warley, wore odd socks last Monday, November 12, to celebrate diversity, individuality and respecting those around them.
Children then watched a live performance from the Hope by the Take Away Theatre about bullying in school.
After the play, they were split into group workshops to discuss various techniques that can be used to combat bullying.
Advice was also given on how to deal with people that instigate bullying.
The week was rounded off with an assembly from Upper 1 (Year 4) where their message of respect was thoughtfully shown through a special addition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? and a rendition of CBBC’s Andy and the Odd Socks song Choose Respect.
Head of juniors Mrs Mongelard said: “I’m very proud of the way the children participated in the workshops and also of the Year 4 class, Upper One, and their brilliant assembly.
“They expressed the importance of how to “choose respect” in a mature and clever way.
“It was an insightful and enjoyable way to discuss such an important topic.”
