Last week was national Anti-bullying week. The main message to the children during the week was ‘Make a Noise about Bullying’. In Monday’s assembly the children were reminded about the definition of bullying (Several Times On Purpose) and the message of ‘Its OK to tell!’, through a child friendly story.
