This year’s Anti-Bullying Week takes place from Monday 11th November until Friday 15th November. This year the goal is to inform students that it takes a collective responsibility to stop bullying. Assemblies have already been held on this theme and there will be a number of activities taking place throughout the week to raise awareness and promote a positive atmosphere inside and outside of school.
As part of Anti-Bullying Week, the Anti-Bullying Alliance holds a national “Odd Socks Day”, which falls this year on Tuesday 12th November. We are inviting students to come to school wearing odd socks for the day, which is designed to highlight Anti-Bullying Week and celebrate what makes us all unique. We would ask, where possible, for students to donate £1 on the day. All proceeds will go to the Anti-Bullying Alliance, which organises Anti-Bullying Week and works tirelessly to stop bullying and create safer environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn.
I hope that you would agree that this is a worthwhile activity and ask that you encourage your son/daughter to take part in Odd Socks Day. I look forward to seeing the positive response from students and to raising money for a fantastic cause.
