Last week April 23rd - 27th was Anti-bullying Week in Ardscoil La Salle. All activities were organised by Ms Dever's CSPE class, as the action project for their junior cert.
Everyone in the class got involved in the planning and organisation stages. It was a real class effort.
They organised and facilitated anti-bullying workshops for other classes. A friendship mural, that included the handprints of the wholeschool community, was painted in the lunchroom. The students in the class took on the teachers in a football match. By the way the teachers won a very close match. They made and sold anti- bullying loom bands. The grand finale was a guest speaker from Childline who gave an excellent talk on cyber- bullying and how to deal with it, before being presented with a cheque for the money raised during the week.
