Anti- Bullying Week by Laura Oakley
‘We’re all a piece in the puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.’
The 16th – 20th November marks Anti-Bullying Week and this year the theme is: United Against Bullying. The team behind this year’s theme have recognised that: ‘This year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge.’
Small change. Big difference.
Whether it is verbal, physical, online or in-person, bullying has a significant impact on a child’s life well in to adulthood. By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with work together.
