Good afternoon Manuka School, Parents and Vodafone warriors. On behalf of the WAB team I would like to welcome you to our special Warriors against bullies assembly
The first time the Wab team got together we were joined by members of the Vodafone warriors team, We had a great session learning about types of bullying and ways that we can stop bullying if we all work together.
We decided that bullying is when one person (or a group of people) target a person (or people) and consistently hurt them, hurt their feelings or damage their property on purpose. This includes name calling, hitting, emailing and texting, threatening and breaking peoples stuff. It does not include arguments and knocking into people by accident.
We were interested to find out that,…. when a junior class was asked about what bullies look like this is what they came up with.. We know that this is not true
Any one of us could be a bully
We would like Manuka School to come together and help us to kick bullying into touch
So manuka school- we want you to join with us in the mission to stop bullying. We hope you enjoyed our assembly.
Manuka Warriors Against Bullying
Welcome to<br />Manuka School’s<br />Warriors Against Bullying<br />
The Vodafone Warriors came to <br />Manuka School in 2009 to help us set <br />up our WAB programme<br />
What is bullying?<br />Bullying is when one person (or a group of people) target a person (or people) and consistently hurt them, hurt their feelings or damage their property on purpose.<br />We learned that when someone is being bullied they may feel...<br />Alone<br />Unwanted<br />Worried<br />Angry<br />Scared<br />Annoyed<br />Nobody likes being bullied<br />
We were interested to find out that, when a junior class was asked about what bullies look like this is what they came up with..<br />
We worked with Warriors to <br />Kick bullying Into touch!<br />In the months that followed the team adapted the W.A.B programme to meet the needs of the children at our school. We altered the “rules” and “tactics” to fit around our school name and attributes. This way the programme was easier for our children to understand.<br />We can now use this programme to help prevent bullying at our school. <br />This is what it looks like...<br />
The Rules<br />M<br />ake an effort to respect other people and their property.<br />A<br />ll people at Manuka School need to share the responsibility<br /> to help stop bullying.<br />N<br />ever talk about others behind their backs.
