Lahore: Bullying undermines key values that schools aim to promote in students - respect, trust and honesty. Keeping this in mind, the Senior School dedicated a week to raise awareness regarding bullying starting February 29, 2016. The teachers and students planned a variety of exciting activities with an aim to empower young people to raise their voice against bullying – whether it is happening to them or to someone else, face to face or online.

A special questionnaire was prepared to take students’ feedback on bullying on the campus. Fortunately, majority of our students supported the idea that our school is a Bully Free Zone. In addition videos related to the effects of bullying and how to report bullying were shared with the students. The students also participated in the Bookmark Making activity. The thought provoking bookmarks reinforced the message that bullying is unacceptable in any form and it is an act that should not be tolerated. Furthermore, the students and staff members assembled in the ground for an aerial photograph illustrating the motivational term STEP UP. The purpose was to encourage our students to come forward and eradicate bullying culture from the society.
