Students at Giant’s Head Elementary School have a few words to say about bullying.

Students at Giant’s Head Elementary School have a few words to say about bullying.

For Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, students in Chris McIntosh’s Grade 2 class wrote their thoughts about bullying.

The messages, under the title, My World Wish, include the following:

o “I wish kids would include others so lots of people would have lots of friends. No one should be left out. Maybe even bullies shouldn’t be left out because if they play with nice people they probably would be nice.”

o “I wish kids would stand up for one another. If we did, the bully would have no one to bully.”

o “I wish people would be kinder to others by being polite and respecting others.”

o “I wish people would stop fighting. Instead, we could try to give a lot of compliments.”

o “I wish people wouldn’t say mean things to hurt others’ feelings. Instead they could say nice things and compliments to one another.”

o “I wish people in the world would use more manners. If they did, people would be so much happier and there wouldn’t be so much fighting.”

Messages can also be seen online at bullyfreesummerland.com.
