Odd Socks Day & Anti-Bullying Week at Junior School
To mark the start of Anti-Bullying Week, the girls wore Odd Socks to school on Monday.
Through this, we celebrate the idea that everyone is different, as shown in these photos from 4D and 5T. 3F and 1P spoke with their buddy classes at Kensington Prep, as part of highlighting that we can ‘Reach Out’ to people within our school, as well as our network of GDST schools.
Mrs Ferguson shared a book, entitled ‘Be Kind’, with the school during a virtual assembly. In it, the main character explored what it means to be kind to different people, including something as simple as learning someone’s name and saying ‘hi’ to them. She explained what bullying is and how it can happen online or face to face. The theme of Anti-Bullying Week was to ‘reach out’ – whether that is to friends, teachers and school staff or parents and school staff.
Odd Socks Day reminds us that we are all different and that is not only OK, but something to be celebrated!
We look forward to carrying on this theme of kindness and reaching out to people well beyond Anti-Bullying Week.
