Bullying and Cyber-bullying

Effectus Theatre Company & One Day Creative presented ‘UGLY’ a show about bullying and cyber-bullying. Have you ever thought about what happened to the Ugly Sisters after Cinderella went off to marry her Prince Charming? This was a challenging and thought-provoking piece about the effects of bullying and cyber-bullying. This interactive performance looked at issues children are facing today including social media, trolling, peer pressure, verbal abuse and physical bullying. It also looks at how easily it happens and how we can avoid getting involved. They questioned some of the myths surrounding bullying; is it a normal part of childhood? Is it still cyberbullying if you have never met the person and haven’t physically hurt them? Along the way the children met some famous characters including Cinderella and Prince Charming themselves (well, over Skype), and they helped the sisters to work out what to do next.

Our Start of Year Mass

Our start of year Mass was a thoughtful and reflective service. Father Sam’s homily –that Jesus did so much for us –let us do something in return. Father Sam also spoke about The Jubilee Year of Mercy “Merciful like the Father” and reminded the children about showing kindness and consideration to each other both in school and the wider community.
