Fairfield High School (FHS) embraced anti-bullying week by holding a number of special assemblies, activities, competitions and events in the week commencing 13 November.

The event was organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, with the theme this year being to promote difference and equality in schools with the tag-line 'All Different, All Equal'. 

The week began with a presentation for all students to highlight bullying facts and statistics about types of bullying, how bullying can make you feel, how people being bullied might react, the areas of life that bullying affects and how to get bullying to stop. Key Stage 3 students were given debate scenarios to encourage new ways of thinking, collaboration and understanding surrounding the issues of bullying and how it can be dealt with, whilst Key Stage 4 students were given the task of writing an “anti-bullying” Japanese verse, Haiku.

Following an odd socks competition midweek the FHS community wore odd socks to celebrate what makes us all different and all equal.

To round off the week, students and staff culminated anti-bullying week with Children in Need with a whole host of fundraising activities on the agenda. There were teacher auctions, sponge the teacher, pie face, guess the baby picture and best of all, make the teacher laugh.
