St Teilo’s is launching its first anti-hate awareness-raising campaign on 27th February 2017. Dubbed #NotInMySchool, the programme aims to address the issues of hate and discrimination faced by young people in school. Bringing together some of the best anti-hate organisations in Wales, the school is hosting a series of workshops for pupils to learn more about recognising, celebrating and respecting difference. Pupils and staff will also join together in solidarity through collective worship and raise awareness through poster, postcard and social media campaigns. Deputy Headteacher, Mr I Loynd, says:
1.5 million children in the UK (50%) have been bullied within the past year. We want to do something about it. We believe that all young people have the right to come to school and feel safe, cared for and happy. Intolerance and discrimination may be prevalent in our communities, media and politics however there is no place for hate in our school.
Students, staff, families and friends can show their support for #NotInMySchool by wearing one of our colourful wristbands. We’re suggesting a donation of 50p however please give as generously as you can. All donations will be given to our charity committee.
