Do You Know an Upstander from a Bystander?

Anti Bullying Workshop by Quinn 5M

Yesterday, the entire Lower School attended an Anti-Bullying Workshop. The workshop was humorous. The facilitator (Laura) did a puppet show and delivered an interactive workshop. Year 5 and 6 acted and answered questions about bullying and I even got to be the main character Philip. Although the show was humorous, it had a very serious message.
