Anti Bullying Workshops Promote Importance Of Friendship
Newcastle United Foundation’s Schools Team delivered Anti-bullying workshops to Red Row First school children as part of Anti-Bullying Week.
Foundation Project Officers, Andrew Johnson and Michael Bertram, delivered four sessions to Years 1,2,3 and 4 which highlighted the impact of bullying, the value of friendship and the importance of treating each other equally.
Pupils were engaged through a fictional story centred on the friendship of two Newcastle United players which detailed the impact of being nasty and benefits of being nice. Pupils were then tasked with designing their own ‘5 days of kindness’ poster. This included recognising and recording 5 things they could do over the next 5 days which would make a fellow pupil smile or feel good.
Deputy Head Teacher of Red Row, Dave Vero said ‘All the pupils really enjoyed it. Our staff were very complementary about the Foundation staff. Everybody thought that Andrew and Michael had a great rapport with the pupils, from the youngest to the oldest. The brilliant work the children did was a reflection of the session and it was a great addition to our Anti-bullying Week’.
Project Officer Andrew Johnson said ‘We thoroughly enjoyed delivering the session. The students showed a fantastic attitude towards taking on board the key messages and were a delight to work with’.
The anti-bullying session is part of the Foundations United In Education programme which aims to engage pupils of all ages in bespoke education by using the power of football and the brand of Newcastle United.
