Charterhouse pupils Choose Respect
This week pupils participated in Anti-Bullying Week with a whole-school Mufti Day, pupil-led chapel services, and various talks and discussions, all in hopes of raising awareness of the bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere.
Along with dressing down for the day, Thursday also saw a sea of odd socks amongst staff and pupils. Odd socks were worn to represent individuality amongst people, and to show that everyone is unique.
Funds were raised for the Anti-Bullying Alliance who fight to stop bullying and create safer environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn.
The theme of this year’s week is ‘Choose Respect’ and the aim of this is to support both children and adults to contemplate the following:
- The definition of respect
- That bullying is a behaviour choice
- That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
- That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online.
