Theme of the Week – 13th November 2017

13 November 2017

Week beginning 13th November

We are taking a break this week from looking at the habits within the Community section of the Character Compass BUT we are not stopping thinking about Community or the concept of “Build or Break” as it is Anti-Bullying Week.

During assemblies on we will be highlighting the fact that it is Anti-Bullying Week and challenging everyone in our community on the issue of bullying.

The QT for this coming week will support our focus on anti-bullying and can be found here:

We are aware that the video may be quite upsetting for some as it highlights the fact that “online bullying hurts for real” however we are committed to trying to reduce all forms of bullying at St.Peter’s. In the PPT there are a number of questions we will think about including:

Do you think the video over-sensationalises bullying or is it an accurate reflection of some of the things that go on?  Why?

Could you cope without the internet for a week?  Why/why not?

Why does bullying exist and how can we stop it?

Prayer

Heavenly Father, please help us to be a community that is thoughtful, kind, creative, brave and responsible. Where there is thoughtlessness, cruelty, destruction and stupidity would you give us the courage to put a stop to it. In Jesus name we pray.

God bless and have a great week.

Mr Baker
