Welcome to a very different kind of assembly!
Bullying is never OK at Newburgh! It is OK to tell if you are feeling bullied and ask for help from your trusted adults.
Remember to use "Stop it Please" if you would like someone to stop doing something that makes you feel sad or scared. Tell an adult if they do not stop. If the adult doesn't listen, keep telling until they do!
Several children provide an introduction to bullying. There are two types of bullying - emotional bullying (excluding people and unkind remarks) and physical bullying (violence). The children explain the effects of bullying on them and how it makes them feel.
Talk about what things in this clip tell us that she got bullied. What things did the bully do to hurt this little girl? Talk about what bullying looks like. How did she find a way to stop the bully? How did the bully make her feel? Where can the children go in their school to talk about being bullied? Why is it important to tell a teacher if you think you are being bullied? Reflect upon how the little girl gives advice about what happens if a teacher doesn’t listen first time. This tells the children to persevere and gives hope.
