2-day Bully-free Ambassadors’ Training Camp

Apr 20, 15 2-day Bully-free Ambassadors’ Training Camp

12 Class Leaders from Primary Four have been nominated to attend the 2-day Bully-free Ambassadors’ Training Camp on 17 and 18 March 2015. I was glad to be one of them. The objective of this camp is to train us to be ambassadors to advocate bully-free environment in the school. This camp was organised by the Singapore Children’s Society and this year marks Frontier’s first ever participation in this camp. My schoolmates and I feel really honoured to be the first batch of pupils to be the ambassadors! Below is a diary to chronicle our journey…

 

Day 1: 17 March 2015

All in high spirits!

We were all excited and roaring to go. After a series of ice-breaker games, we attended a talk on understanding bullying and how to make friends. This was then followed by a telematch challenge. We can’t wait to win some prizes.

After a satisfying lunch, we got busy creating exhibition panels on how to prevent bullying, and how to be a good friend. All of us pitched in our ideas to create creative and informative exhibition panels. With a blink of an eye, Day 1 of the camp has come to an end. We were all feeling tired but have loads of fun. Time to head home to recharge ourselves!

Prior to dismissal, all campers were given an evaluation on the events of the day. They were also briefed on upcoming activities happening the next day. Although our campers were tired after a long day, you can sense that they were looking forward to coming back for more!

 

Day 2: 18 March 2015

It was a bright and sunny morning. Our camp facilitators gave us a short briefing on how to run a Bully-free campaign in the school. They guided us on the preparation of a slogan and a game booth using recycled materials. It was a very intense and packed day for everyone here. However, we were all in high spirits!

At the end of the camp, we won the 2nd place for the Best Banner design! We were so proud of ourselves and for the effort that we have put in. We have also gained new knowledge in the camp such as what to do in the event of bullying and who to report too.

2nd place for the Best banner design!  YEAH!

Alas, it was time to bid everyone goodbye and we were happy to make many new friends in this camp. Thank you to all teachers, camp facilitators Mr Kenneth and Mr Amos, the organizers, as well as our parents for supporting this meaningful event. We hope to share with our fellow classmates and schoolmates what we have learnt from this camp soon. We certainly had lots of fun but it was serious fun. It is the first time we spent so much time thinking about bullying. Bully is not acceptable in Frontier Primary School. However, it is not just the job of the teachers to ensure that we have a bully-free culture; we too as pupils have a role to play. 🙂
