A COOL to be kind day was held at Great Staughton School recently as part of National Anti-Bullying week. The children made posters, leaflets, designed friendship benches and took part in role-playing.

The day was marked by pupils wearing blue clothes. Each class made blue bunting strings which were hung around the outside of the school.

A blue assembly was held in the playground and cakes were decorated in blue icing.

Headteacher Vivienne Francis said: "From the youngest to the oldest, all children agreed that bullying is wrong and it is everyone's responsibility to help eradicate it.

"In the words of a Year 6 child, a warning to bullies should be 'what goes around comes around'.
