Firehorse Theatre visited the school during Anti-Bullying week with their production "Sticks and Stones". The production showed that no child deserves to be bullied and to encourage children not to tolerate such behaviour from their peers.
At Shirland School, our children will tell you that we don't have a problem with bullying as we pride ourselves on dealing with problems early, so they don't become bullying issues. However, as technology becomes a bigger part of our lives, the likelihood of pupils being targeted through social media, texting and emails increases and so events like this are important to help our children to be aware and stay safe.
Here are some photos from the production.
