Kindness & Understanding beats Racism & Bullying
For the last couple of years, children from all the Worksop schools have been taking part in the Junior Council initiative. Two children from each school form the group and they meet regularly with the District Council in Worksop Town Hall under the guidance of one of the local headteachers. Our Junior Councillors this year are Aimee and Abigail in Y6.
The Worksop Junior Council has launched an initiative this year entitled KURB – Kindness and Understanding beats Racism and Bullying. Aimee and Abigail prepared and delivered a great assembly this week to the children on prejudice, where it comes and what its impact is. As part of the project, a poster competition has been launched across all of the Worksop schools to spread the message throughout the town. The Junior Council will be responsible for judging the winning entries on March 1st so they will need to be handed into either Aimee, Abigail or me by that morning at the latest. The winning posters will be on display in key places around Worksop.
This would be a nice activity to do over the half-term holiday and gives families the chance to talk together about this vital issue. Entries need to be on an A4 sheet of paper, neat, brightly coloured but with the message clear.
All the best over half-term! Mr Andy Pullin
