This week is anti-bullying week and the theme this year is ‘one kind word’.
Kindness is more important today than it has ever been.
The isolation of the last year has underlined how little acts of consideration can break down barriers and brighten the lives of the people around us. This year, let’s remind ourselves of the power of kindness, and how it can halt hurtful behaviour in its tracks.
We are asking pupils and staff to get involved in the five days of kindness challenge.
This is a really simple challenge, commit to one act of kindness every day this week!
The challenge aims to start a chain reaction of kind words and kind acts that can share message of hope and positivity.
By spreading kindness, we champion how kindness can halt hurtful behaviour in its tracks. Keep an eye on the Pupil Support Twitter page next week to see what acts of kindness the Pupil Support team are carrying out!
Need some inspiration?
• Donate to a foodbank
• Start a conversation with someone new
• Tell someone they are doing a good job
• Hold a door open
• Ask someone if they are okay
• Give someone a compliment
Remember to share your act of kindness with your Pupil Support teacher or share your act of kindness on Twitter and tag @CarlukeHS or @_respectme_
The Centenary of the Poppy
As well as observing the 2 minute silence today in school, our Princes Trust Group, led by staff member ex Sergeant M Duffy, arranged a display in the Street of 100 poppies, to demonstrate our support for our Armed Services.
Christopher Larkin, a 3rd year member of the group, read out the "Act of Remembrance" before the silence was observed.
A group of staff and pupils, representing the uniformed organisations and our school, walked down to the War Memorial in Market Place, where our School Captain Louie and Vice Captain Eilidh laid our wreath.
Here are our very talented pupils who won the overall prize for their poems written on the theme of CHOICE.
All are in S1 with Emily winning the overall first prize and Marley and Evan our runners up.
Mr Duffy Head Teacher and Ms Lindsay PT English were delighted to present their prizes and copies of their poems.
You can read their poems in our NPD booklet here
