Anti Bullying Week
During the week of 15th-19th November we engaged in a range of activities to raise awareness of caring for our community as part of the national Anti-bullying week.
The week started with reinforcing our commitment to the school’s Kindness Charter. The Kindness Charter ensures we uphold the values we know are important in creating a culture where all students can thrive, be happy and succeed. All our students pledge to uphold these values through signing the CHSG Kindness Charter.
Learning the Value of One Kind Word
An assembly was held outlining the theme for Anti-Bullying Week 2021 which was 'One Kind Word'. One Kind Word stickers were handed out to students to highlight that it only takes one kind word to make someone feel cared for and happy.
As part of the PSHE day all students had a lesson on anti-bullying. The lesson involved students discussing scenarios and how they can resolve conflict through kindness. The lesson was interactive with excellent resources which stimulated a wide range of points of view.
It was really pleasing to see all the students engaged with this topic which demonstrates the kind, caring and thoughtful students we have at our school.
During tutor time in the morning students were engaged in playing kindness bingo. This gave them the opportunity to take part in acts of kindness. It was really nice to see their enthusiasm and commitment to such an important subject
Deep Thinkings & Moments of Reflection
It was wonderful to see all the students so engaged and enthralled by the day’s activities, particularly their session on Anti-Bullying. During this session, the students were given a range of scenarios where they discussed how they could potentially spread kindness and stop bullying in each instance. This session allowed the Year 7 groups to have positive conversations with their tutor about the ways in which they can spread kindness; a message that is ever-important.

I think learning about anti-bullying is so important. We need to be kind to others as well as respect them. How you act towards someone shows people just who you are. Treat others how you would like to be treated. Learning from the anti-bullying sessions made me realise how much bullying actually happens and that we should do all that we can stop to it.

Anti-bullying week had a big impact on us all, it taught us the danger of stereotypes but also how much one kind word can go. From cyberbullying to verbal bullying both types of bullying have a big impact on a child’s life. Antibullying week really helped explain what bullying is and how we can help stop it. So if you see bullying of any kind, tell a teacher or a trusted adult to fix it. Remember to say one kind word, because it can go far.

During anti-bullying week, all teachers and staff worked very hard to make the week special. I felt very motivated and I also love how we did a bingo sheet. The bingo sheet had 16 different activities to complete and they were very fun to do. I be-lieve that no matter what you are doing or where you are, you can always show kindness (even if its just a smile)

On the 16th November, we had our Personal Development Day. One of the things we covered was the impact of bullying which was part of anti-bullying Week. We spent the session with our tutors talking about potential bullying scenarios and what to do to overcome them if they ever happened to us. We really enjoyed the day and look forward to learning more in our next session.

Students Immerse Themselves in Learning
Last week, in CHSG we did an anti-bullying week. In this week we learnt that bullying is not ok and in our school there are many teachers and students we could talk to if something like this happened. Also we learnt that there are many types of bullying, which are cyberbullying, verbal bullying and physical bullying. When learning this, we realised that it is not ok to bully at all.
Also, about the impacts of bullying and that it could take a life away at most. We also had a guest come in and talk about this matter. Overall, this was an amazing week that taught us more about anti-bullying.

During the week all students were asked to nominate names of students who they felt have been kind to them or others. It was heart-warming to see so many nominations flood through. A ballet was done to select a handful of names from those nominations. The students were delighted and very proud of themselves as they were informed of their selection and called to help plant the trees
