Anti-Bullying Week Theme Announced

Anti-Bullying Alliance announce Anti-Bullying Week Theme as “Choose Respect”

What does respect mean to you?

The Anti-Bullying Alliance announced this year’s Anti-Bullying Week Theme as “Choose Respect”, putting forward the idea that we always have a choice on how we behave.

Bullying is a choice, just like respecting others is a choice. We are big supporters of the Anti-Bullying Alliance and the work they do, and are delighted to be performing our Anti-Bullying Shows and Performances aligning with this theme throughout anti-bullying week.

Anti-Bullying week is a great opportunity to clarify what is expected from students and their behaviour. By highlighting bullying as a choice, it is made clear that we can also choose to behave in a positive manner.

#ChooseRespect sends a positive, empowering message to all students, we don’t have to always agree with someone, but that doesn’t mean we need to behave in a negative manner towards them.

Just because we don’t always become friends with people, we can still behave in a way that is respectful towards other people and their feelings. This year’s theme is also a great way of encouraging empathy and understanding

We absolutely love the theme of Anti-Bullying Week and are very excited to see the positive impact it will have on students across the country.

We are also delighted to be providing our Anti-Bullying Shows and Workshops for Primary Schools which focus on this theme throughout November.
