Pupils at Worsbrough Bank End and Hunningley Primary Schools swapped their uniform for colourful clothing last week, in support of Anti-Bullying Week and Children in Need.
The theme of this year’s Anti-Bullying Week, organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, was ‘Choose Respect’ with pupils from schools across the UK encouraged to wear odd socks on Monday 12th November.
As well as donning their odd socks, pupils at both Worsbrough Bank End and Hunningley created a ‘Wall of Respect,’ featuring their names.
Later that week on Friday 16th November, the pupils swapped their uniform for something spotty, with each child donating £1 to Children in Need. All in all, both schools raised almost £800 for the charity.
Nic Thorpe, Executive Head Teacher at Hunningley and Worsbrough Bank End, said:
“We were delighted to be able to support these incredibly important and worthwhile events. As part of our commitment to providing our children with an education with character, we take very seriously our responsibility to teach children about the importance of respect and helping those less fortunate than themselves.”
