Anti-Bullying Week

Anti-Bullying Week at RHS

Last week saw the Royal Hospital School come together as staff and pupils to recognise National Anti-Bullying Week.

This year the theme for the week was 'All Different, All Equal'. Over the five days a programme of activities ran designed to promote our anti-bullying policy, and encourage pupils to be tolerant and caring.

The beginning of the week started with the Odd Socks Day campaign, organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. We invited all members of our school community to wear odd socks to school for the day, in return for a contribution of 50p towards the charity's funds. Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun and is an opportunity for pupils to express themselves and appreciate individuality and uniqueness.

We wrapped on Friday with a poignant moment of solidarity as every pupil in the school walked under an anti-bullying banner and collected a 'No Third Way' sticker in a show of support.
