Students deliver fabulous anti-bullying assembly with a strong message
The theme for this year is ONE KIND WORD and this message is being reinforced across the school to coincide with anti-bullying week.
We have been really impressed with how our student leaders presented the assembly in a sensitive yet thought-provoking way. Twelve student leaders and tutor representatives from Years 8, 9 and 11 delivered the assemblies to all year groups throughout the week. Sam Weston, Lead Learning Manager, said: “We do not tolerate bullying here at Richmond School and Sixth Form College and when it happens, every attempt is made to stamp it out. However, the student leaders recognise that the students themselves need to take responsibility for maintaining a culture of kindness across the school. We hope this assembly will encourage everyone in our school to spread a little kindness everywhere they go.”
The assembly finished with the following words which we encourage all our students to follow:
Before you speak, as yourself:
Is it true?
Ist it kind?
Is it necessary?
Is it helpful?
If the answer is no, maybe what you are about to say should be left unsaid.
Thank you to Leona, Myles, Hayden and Holly (Year 8 students), Ellie, Molly and Harriet (Year 9 students) and Toby, Chloe, Osea, Grace and Charlotte (Year 11 students) for leading the assembly.
