Band-ing to­gether against bul­ly­ing

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

Tay­lor High pupils were en­ter­tained by lo­cal band Sin­gle By Sun­day.

And the per­for­mance for the sec­ond years also had a se­ri­ous mes­sage, as the chil­dren learned about cy­ber-bul­ly­ing.

A school spokesper­son said:“the band used the medium of song to con­vey a very im­por­tant and top­i­cal mes­sage on cy­ber-bul­ly­ing, some­thing which is ex­pe­ri­enced by many in­ter­net users at some point in their lives.

“How to deal with cy­ber-bul­ly­ing is an im­por­tant skill for our young peo­ple to ac­quire, both in terms of iden­ti­fy­ing cy­ber-bul­ly­ing and hav­ing strate­gies to deal with it. Lots of good ad­vice was of­fered and aware­ness raised re­gard­ing what con­sti­tutes bul­ly­ing be­hav­iour.

“Many thanks to Pa­tri­cia Rooney, act­ing de­pute head teacher, for or­gan­is­ing this event – and the band rocked!”

Mean­while, the school’s an­nual Macmil­lan cof­fee morn­ing was a huge suc­cess, rais­ing £1323.

Or­gan­is­ers would like to say a huge thank you also goes to all the pupils and staff for con­tribut­ing to this wor­thy cause with such gen­eros­ity.
