Year 5 and 6 pupils at St Mary Magdalene primary school took part in an Anti-Bullying Graffiti Workshop at the end of November.

Daisy, Year 6, reported: “We had to make an anti-bullying poster on a colourful board using our graffiti skills taught by John and Tom.

We had to come up with our own anti-bullying slogan that we transferred onto the board using graffiti pens. They taught us how to write in the graffiti style and how to make our letters look 3D.

We also made a banner using using spray cans and handprints inspired by the anti-bullying week, which is now displayed at the entrance to the school for everyone to see. We all enjoyed the workshop and our graffiti posters look amazing!”

This was part of a nationwide campaign run by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. The key aims of the week were to empower children and young people to make a noise about bullying, to help parents and carers have conversations with their children about bullying, to encourage ‘talking schools’ where all children and young people are given a safe space to discuss bullying and other issues, to equip teachers to respond effectively when children tell them they’re being bullied, and to raise awareness of the impact of bullying on children’s lives.
