A cake sale in aid of Childline started the week, followed by an event called Make a Difference on Tuesday. Students filled up post-it notes outlining what makes them happy and what makes them sad. This information was collated and is on display on the TV in the GPA. Bonding games and sports activities were also organised for 1st year students, coordinated and run by the students on the committee. SPHE classes focussed on the issues associated with bullying and colourful information posters were put on public display where they will remain. The Transition Year Young Social Innovators group are also focussing on bullying with a particular emphasis on the role of the bystander in bullying situations. Their project is called Speak Out, Stand Out, Stamp Out Bullying. They have written a song which was played over the intercom at tutor-time during anti-bullying week and every student in the school lined the corridors to stand out against bullying.
