National Stand Up to Bullying Day -13th June 2018
Pupils, parents and staff all joined together to stand up to bullying sharing our three key messages for the day:
Our Ambassadors were at the ready to share our key messages and random acts of kindness with parents on the playground before school. Parents loved receiving smiley stickers for sharing their smiles, helpfulness and positive messages with others.
