We choose respect...
by Eleni Kefala
There's nothing better than celebrating respect in a week full of fun games and activities. This was the Anti-Bullying Week here at ISO. It all started on Monday 12/11, when we came to school with our odd socks. The message we wanted to send? It's ok to be different! We sang and danced to songs about respect and had interesting anti-bullying activities incorporated in our lessons. In Y4, we pledged commitment to respect by leaving our colourful handprint on a big paper; however, the biggest challenge was what was happening outside of our classrooms, at House level. Each milepost had a different challenge to complete in their Houses. Our little friends in Y1,2 and 3 had a competition about the most creative odd sock. The kids from Y4 to Y6 competed in making the most creative sentence in sign language, using words related to anti-bullying and respect. They also had to create a relevant poster and their work was truly amazing! Our older children from Y7 to Y10 had an even more demanding task - to sing a whole song about respect using sign language! Their performance was something to remember! All these activities were of course linked to House Points with Wonkas winning 6 points, Matildas 5 points and Foxes with Twits 4 points. We hope that the whole week was something memorable for the children and we're looking forward to repeating it next year!
