Bullying is a serious problem that affects lots of kids, but YOU can be part of the solution to stop bullying in your school. If you want to make your school a better place for everyone, take the Anti-Bullying Challenge by doing these four things this month.
- Smile and say “Hello” to every single person you see in school. EVERY SINGLE PERSON you see gets a smile. Do this every day in March (and beyond).
- Invite someone you don’t normally hang out with to sit with you at lunch, or play with you at recess. Do this every day in March. You can invite a different person every day, or invite the same person more than one day, but it has to be someone you have never played with or sat with before.
- Ask your teacher if you can have a Compliment Day where you anonymously write a compliment about everyone in class. The teacher then reads the all compliments out loud. One way to do this is to photocopy a list of names in the class. Hand out the list to each student and everyone fills out the list with compliments for each person on the list. This will take some planning, so ask your teacher in advance if you can do this one day in March.
- Ask the principal if you can hang up posters in your school celebrating the diversity and differences of all the kids in school. Get permission from the principal and then get creative! Gather your friends together and make some awesome posters that make all kids in school feel special. Or start a school club that gets everyone involved!
