PSE - Week to beat the bullies

10th September 2010 at 01:00

National Anti-Bullying Week (November 15-19) is being marked by respectme with a national competition based on the theme "what bullying means to me".

Entries can be submitted by individuals or groups to three categories:

- artistic - artwork, posters, photographs or sculpture;

- creative writing - poems, songs, raps and short stories;

- performance - short films, dramadrama scripts, animation and dance.

The competition is open to those aged nine to 16.

But there are also other ways to mark the week, says respectme.

"Maybe the maths class can compile some bullying statistics? One organisation used a geography lesson to map the perimeter of its building and grounds, and asked pupils to shade in the areas where they felt safe and those where they thought bullying might take place," said a spokesperson.

The organisation also wants to hear from schools which are doing something different to mark the national event. The deadline for entries is Friday, October 8.
