|The Wall of Peace created during lunch throughout Red Ribbon Week. It is now on display in the Main Office.
This is the Wall of Peace here at Robert Gordon School. Creating the Wall of Peace taught our students about making positive choices with our words and behavior. We learned that every student should be treated with kindness and respect.
The wall was initially covered with bricks that reflected unkind words and behaviors, showing that bullying can lead to isolation and low self esteem. During the course of the week students discussed how negative words and actions such as teasing and leaving peers out of activities and games can negatively affect others. Each negative word was covered with a positive word after discussing the difference one word can make in a situation or interaction. The students learned they have the power to make decisions for themselves and that kindness allows us to make others feel good about themselves. The Wall of Peace activity and associated lessons teach our students they have the power to contribute in a positive way to our school community and creates the foundation for a cohesive, positive, and successful school community.
Please stop by the office or call me at any time to learn more about the Wall of Peace or the steps we have and continue to take to address bullying in our school.
