St. Paul’s College is running a STAND UP AGAINST BULLYING WEEK from 11th-15th of November.
The aim of the week is to raise awareness of the negative effects of bullying on others and to explore some of the issues around bullying such as the bystander effect.
On Monday 11th there will be ‘Cyber Bullying & Internet Safety Training’ for first years.
There will be a evening session on cyber bullying at 7pm for ALL PARENTS that wish to attend.
On Wednesday we will be having a RAINBOW day- this is a sign of solidarity for our LGBT students but also to show that we are all different- but together as a school community we make something beautiful. First years are asked to wear red, second years orange, third years yellow, fourth years green, fifth years blue and sixth years & staff purple.
We run this day in conjunction with Belong To organisation, as can be seen form the video below when STAND UP week was launched nationally in the school in 2017.
On Thursday there will be talks on this topic for 4th year students.
Finally, throughout the week, all students in the school, will be surveyed on their wellbeing and on how we can make St.Paul’s flag a more welcoming place for them.
We were awarded with the amber flag for positive health initiatives in 2016 and we wish to keep this momentum going.
