For this year’s Anti-Bullying Week, the theme is ‘Choose Respect’.
The organisers of the event, Anti-Bullying Alliance, chose this theme after speaking to over 800 children, teachers and members of their foundation.
On their website, they state that from these discussions, it became clear that “a top priority was to show that bullying is a behaviour choice, and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school, in their homes and communities, and online.”
As one of our 8 Becky Values our swimmers are rewarded for showing, ‘Respect’ is something that we believe is very important at SwimStars. To ensure that we are able to provide a supportive environment for our swimmers to learn in, we understand that there needs to be a shared respect between our teachers, swimmers, parents and the wider SwimStars team.
Our Becky Values also include Friendship, Leadership and Courage – all of which work together to create an industry-leading Learn to Swim journey.
