Anti-bullying week 2019
This 11th-15th November, we saw the Northfields community embrace our first annual anti bullying week with the slogan ‘Change Starts With Us’. The students participated in a range of activities both during formal lesson times and during lunch times. Lessons focused on what students can do to help lead the change to eradicate bullying at Northfields, whilst fun activities at lunchtime encouraged inclusion amongst students. Special thanks go to the anti-bullying committee for organizing the activities and the Year 12 students who ran sports tournaments and drop-in sessions.
The week culminated with the Form competition for the best anti-bullying board. All the form groups at Northfields participated by designing and making interactive poster boards. The classes had 1 week to produce a poster that will encourage friendship, kindness, and positive behaviour towards their peers. The judges had a very tough job judging all the excellent poster boards from all the forms. The students did their best to produce top notch boards with excellent information. This was a creative and team building activity that shared a positive message to all.
In the end the winning teams were:
Students will continue to make a change throughout the year as we launch a ‘friendly face’ programme, develop a student pledge and explore the possibility of a school mural.
