Students at ICS are “Stronger than a bully”

Students at Immaculate Conception School in grades 2 through 5 had a very special lesson in life skills last Thursday.  A Mobile Ed Production Assembly entitled “Stronger than a Bully” made a stop at the school to speak on a problem facing many children and schools today-bullying.  The assembly reinforced the importance of standing up to a bully and not becoming a victim and also not being a bystander, but being an “upstander”.  This fast-paced interactive school assembly program focused on an important lesson, but filled the gymnasium with laughter as it encompassed magic, ventriloquism, role playing, comedy, and loads of fun.  The program presenter, David Mitchel, explained to the kids that the best reaction to bullying is to SMILE.  “S”tay Cool!  “M”ake Eye Contact.  “I”dentify the Attack.  “L”ead positive conversation and “E”rase it!  On the other side of the fence, not letting another friend suffer the attack of a bully can put a student in the position of a hero having the power to change a situation for a friend.  Immaculate Conception School was full of SMILES at the conclusion of the show.
