To conclude Anti-Bullying week, Home Tree School held a morning workshop. This involved the students and the staff dividing into small groups to cover a variety of topics such as Racism, Peer on Peer Abuse and Cyber Bullying.
Each group had a task of creating either a PowerPoint presentation, poster or their own song to share amongst the class when they came together at the end of the morning.
It was evident that our students and staff did not disappoint us as these PowerPoint presentations and posters that they have created will be put to good use as staff training methods and displays around the school.
They also made an amazing and hard-hitting song too!
Take a look at the lyrics of their song entitled 'Hold Up':
Listen to our playlist
Don’t be a racist
Racism ain’t good
We all join forces
While we all remorse
About all the hatred, depression, suicide and skin bleaching
When all we should do is educating through teaching
Don’t be a racist, be an activist
For equality, unity, inclusion and race
Know your place, don’t be a disgrace
Don’t culture appropriate
Why not culture appreciate
Having different coloured skin
don’t make you weird
We’re just the same as you,
nothing to be feared
Why not sit together
and have a cup of tea
And then maybe you’ll see
that there is unity
Islam is a religion
Not to be mistaken with terrorism
It’ll lead you to prison
Praise Allah through prayer not through terror
Now through this playlist your mind should be clearer
The Headteacher Melanie Higgs even dressed for the part as a rapper and was very proud of all those who got involved.
