16/11/2018 ANTI-BULLYING WEEK MARKED AT LORETO COLLEGE

National Anti-Bullying Week was marked at Loreto College from 12th-16th November, with a range of activities taking place to emphasise the theme of Respect.

Throughout the week, students discussed Anti-Bullying strategies in form class and presentations were made at Assembly, with a focus on the College’s Anti-Bullying Pledge.  Various subject departments, for instance Art & Design and English, promoted school and national competitions on an Anti-Bullying theme, while the school’s Anti-Bullying Ambassadors were on hand to take the lead in all activities and talk to any student who felt they needed some support.

Head of Drama Mrs Oonah McEwan and a group of 6 Year 11 Drama students travelled to the Harbour Commissioners Office in Belfast to be presented with first place in the Movie/Performance section of this year’s Anti-Bullying Drama competition – their performance showed tremendous enthusiasm and commitment.

Finally, in the weekly Friday registration class for all students, work was begun on a Loreto Happier Wall, to which all members of the student community have the opportunity to contribute.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to the school’s Pastoral Care Co-ordinator Mrs Frances Pepin, who had organised all the activities for Anti-Bullying week, commenting that the theme of Respect was central to everything that happens during every week at Loreto College.
