Moore Park Beach State School has celebrated National Day Against Bullying and Violence today in spectacular fashion.
Upper School Teacher Nadia Kronk said it was worth the wait.
“We missed the original date in Term One due to the COVID-19 restrictions, so we, as a school, thought that we could still hold this day as it is such an important issue,” she said.
“We have purchased arm bands and pendants for each of the students in the school.
“Students have been involved in class lessons and discussions regarding the importance of the day.
“The students also understand the impact of bullying within a school community,
“A day such as this accentuates the issue of bullying and show ways to overcome and deal with the associated problems.”
Year Six students did a number of “freeze frame” skits highlighting examples of bullying and how best to deal with issues if they occur.
All students then assembled on the oval to be part of a “human sign” reading ‘NO WAY’.
Moore Park Beach State School approached Cr Jason Bartels to see if Council could arrange drone footage of the human sign.
“We were delighted to help out,” Cr Bartels said.
“The students and teachers have done so much work in preparation for National Day Against Bullying and Violence and we’re pleased that we could capture the moment.”
