Bigger Than A Bully
On Thursday, 16th June, 2011, Year 1 and 2 students had the opportunity to work with Mr Robert Patruno, Principal of Verona school. Mr Patruno has written a book to highlight to students what can be bigger and more powerful than a bully - and that is their own voices!
The book, "Bigger Than A Bully", encourages students to tell someone if they experience or see inappropriate behaviour. The book also helps students determine who they can tell.
As well as being a Principal and author, Mr Patruno is a cartoonist. He showed students how they can use basic shapes to create their own characters. Everybody had the opportunity to draw and create - and what a lot of talented artists and cartoonists we found!! Go to the "Year 1 Cartoonists" to see those photos.
