Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated by the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum. It will take place on the week beginning 12 November 2018.  The focus of Anti-Bullying Week 2018 will be on the theme of RESPECT.

 

Under this theme we will be encouraging children and young people to think about what the respect means to them, what it feels like to be respected and how they show respect to others. Overall, we will be exploring how respect for others can build an anti-bullying culture in our schools, youth groups and communities.

Young People’s Competition – Get Creative!

 

We are also delighted to announce the return of our hugely popular creative competition for children and young people. This activity provides an excellent opportunity to engage a large number of young people, focussing on this important issue.  Like the week itself, the focus of the competition is “Respect” and how this helps build an anti-bullying culture. This year we would like to stress that only entries which reflect this theme will be shortlisted. This year there will be two categories:

 

  • Art
  • Movie/Performance
