Anti-Bullying Week 2021

In November 2021, we celebrated “One Kind Word”, the official theme of Anti-Bullying Week 2021/22. Mrs Ryan came to each class in the school, teaching all the boys and girls about the importance of using kind words and also strategies to deal with bullies. Posters and slogans brightened our hallways, promoting positive and kind behaviors, choices and words.

Our Student Council also shared a very informative video with us. Check it out here

Anti-Bullying Week 2020

St Brigid’s NS celebrated World Children’s Day on Friday 20th November. This is a day for children, by children, all over the world to help save children’s lives, fight for their rights and help them fulfil their potential. In our school, as it coincided with Anti-Bullying Week, we decided to focus on the positive; how unique each and everyone of us are. We also reflected on why we are all so special and this that we believe are important. To represent this, the children wore odd, bright, pattern and colourful socks!

We all had a wonderful day and it really highlighted all the talents we have as a community and the things we hold dear to our hearts.

Túsla: Coping with Bullying – For Parents of Children Between 6 and 12 Years. This booklet is for parents of children aged 6 to 12 years who are being bullied and for parents of children who are bullying others. It gives information on the reasons behind bullying and how you can help your child if they are being bullied or are bullying other children.

The website, which was developed by the National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre (ABC) at Dublin City University, provides information, support and advice for students, teachers and parents on how to recognise and deal with bullying behaviour and allows teenagers to share experiences with their peers online.
