Sun­ny­side says "NO" to Bul­ly­ing

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Last week was an im­por­tant week at Sun­ny­side be­cause it was our Anti-Bully week. Through­out the week, all stu­dents and staff par­tic­i­pated in a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties that were or­ga­nized by our Spir­i­tual An­i­ma­tor Kristal Maguire. Stu­dents met on Mon­day for an as­sem­bly, dur­ing which time they were given pink anti-bully bracelets that they were en­cour­aged to wear all week. They also made posters in each home­room to be placed in the lobby of the school as well as pink cir­cles with kind words writ­ten on them. Fri­day was our clos­ing cer­e­mony when most of the stu­dents and staff wore pink shirts to sup­port the aware­ness of Anti-Bully week. The cer­e­mony ended in the gym with all stu­dents, staff and spe­cial guest form­ing a hu­man chain to show our unity and sup­port against bul­ly­ing. It was a suc­cess­ful week with a lot of pos­i­tive mes­sages given about a very im­por­tant is­sue that af­fects many of us on dif­fer­ent lev­els.
