Grade 5 students at St. Joseph’s Blata L-Bajda primary school have won a inter-school anti-bullying art competition. The students’ submission was judged was to be the most creative, original and effective entry into a Victim Support Malta competition titled ‘Together against Bullying’.
In presenting their work to the entire school, the students said they had selected gossiping, stalking, cyber bullying and violence as their key themes, with the grade having settled on a final picture after poring over ideas from both grade classes.
“The hands which appear below the victim are a symbol of us supporting the victim and we, the two grade 5 classes, signed our names on them,” they said.
The two classes worked under the supervision and guidance of their art teacher, Ms Becky. She said the project had been a success “because all 52 girls worked in such harmony that they really united and understood more how wrong bullying is. It was a memorable project for us all.”
The girls were rewarded for their hard work and creativity with cinema and bowling tickets.
