Tuesday - today we "join hands" as we complete a school-wide hand chain and stand together
Wednesday - The Take What You Need Board begins for students and staff today in our school where creating positive messages for all is the goal!
Thursday - let's hear you cheer Comets as you classes create Cheers and Poems about bullying and the need for inclusiveness
Friday - we honour the character trait of Courage through our assembly, Wacky Tacky Day (celebrate all that makes us unique and wonderful!), and the Take What You Need Board. We also share the brand new School Pledge with all our Comets today!!!
NEW SCHOOL PLEDGE
When I see or am being bullied
I have a duty to stop, walk and talk
I will stand with and support everyone
I have a responsibility to include others
And a right to be me!
