On 4th November, and for the second year in a row, The Halley Academy Social Action Group comprising of Gabriel, Tristan, Nicholas and Dylan were invited to lead workshops for The Royal Borough of Greenwich ‘Change Starts With Us’ Anti-Bullying Conference at the Professional Development Centre.
The three one hour workshops which were designed and led by The Halley Academy Social Action Group, taught primary school students in Year 5 and Year 6 from across the borough about bullying behaviour and how to identify, tackle and prevent it altogether. The students worked in groups to create engaging role plays that addressed bullying they had witnessed or experienced in their own schools, and ended with the students writing their ideas and reflections on a ‘Respect Wall.’
Once again The Halley Academy Social Action Group were a credit to the academy and polished and professional in highlighting their key message of ‘respect’ in the fight against bullying in schools and the wider community.
Rachel Quinne, the Restorative Approach and Anti-Bullying Coordinator, commented: ‘I was thoroughly impressed with the maturity, creativity and politeness of The Halley Academy Social Action Group, and they worked with the primary school pupils so well. In fact, I think their workshop was one of the most popular with the children.’
We look forward to taking part in the conference again next year.
