Anti-bullying week

The first week of every new term is Anti-Bullying Week here at St.Colmcille’s GNS. This term it took place from January 9th to January 13th!! Children spent the week discussing strategies to undertake and who to talk to if a problem may arise.

We continue to make bullying everyone’s business.

We believe everyone should be empowered to address bullying.

Firstly everyone needs to be able to understand and identify bullying.

All bullying behaviour usually has the following  features:It is usually repetitive and persistent.It is intentionally harmful.It involves an imbalance of power, leaving someone feeling helpless to prevent it or put a stop to it.It causes feelings of distress, fear, loneliness and lack of confidence in those who are at the receiving end.

Our Anti-Bullying Code addresses all these issues in a simple 5 step process:

Be kind to everyone

Play together and stay together

Friends mind each other

We call unkind actions or words bullying and SAY NO TO BULLYING

Tell someone you trust that you are being bullied. Keep telling until someone helps you

Road Safety Iniative

This week we have implemented a very successful Road Safety Iniative here in St Colmcille’s GNS . With the help of our local Gardaí and your cooperation and goodwill, we have seen a real improvement in safety at pick up and drop off times. We hope these good practises continue.

We thank you sincerely for your cooperation and we will be working in the weeks ahead with all stakeholders to explore options which help improve safety around our school.
