Interhouse – Anti-Bullying Week – Odd Socks Friday – This week is Anti-Bullying Week.  Anti – Bullying week is an annual UK event held in the third week in November which aims to raise awareness of bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere, and to highlight ways of preventing and responding to it. On Friday we will have Odd Socks Day to celebrate what makes us unique….what kind will you choose to wear?!

Challenge: Earn yourself an Interhouse point by wearing odd socks and help us spread awareness.

How to earn your point:  Go to your House Google Classroom and find the “Odd Socks” assignment. Take a picture of you wearing your socks (your face does not have to be in it) and post it in the assignment. If you cannot take a picture please come to 2.11 on Friday anytime throughout the day and show your socks/give your name and house to Miss Hardie and we will allocate a point to your house.
