WGS enjoyed an activity-packed week of anti-bullying and interfaith awareness, thanks to the wonderful Harmony Committee and everyone who got involved! The week began with Odd Socks Day and our thanks go to everyone who donated £127.80 to support the Anti-Bullying Alliance and also to everyone who had fun with the Pets in Odd Socks competition; big congratulations go to Loki for making it to the final round! A ‘selfie station’ in the library proved very popular as well, encouraging the children to take a pose with someone from a different year group, or that they may not normally hang out with, supporting the ‘Reach Out’ theme of the week. The Harmony Committee continued the Reach Out theme by running an anti-bullying poster design competition, and asking children to help create an anti-bullying display during playtimes by drawing around their arms and filling them with kind words.
Mrs Evans’ interfaith assembly and an interfaith focus in RE lessons throughout the week, highlighted the important part all religions can play in treating people with kindness, and the importance of diversity and inclusivity. The Harmony Committee’s support for the Samaritan’s Purse shoebox appeal was another huge success. After delivering them to the Home of Compassion, over 50 gift-filled shoe boxes are now making their way to less fortunate children around the world, thanks to the huge kindness and generosity shown by our Weston Green School community.
