The first night of the Community Building Series focused on the use of internet, new media & cyberbullying. Grades 10 and 7/8 prepared these topics and presented them in two parts.
In the first part, two tenth graders explained the survey they had done with the 5-12 classes & showed the results to the audience. After that students presented short statements which were discussed directly after in a panel discussion. Part of that were students, teachers and parents. Afterwards there was a 15 minute break in which everyone could enjoy refreshments.
The second part started with an anti-bullying film from grades 7/8 which also won the "Boston vs. Bullying" prize. That was followed by another panel discussion in the same style as the first one. With open questions the audience was integrated into the discussion about the movie.
The whole night was a big success. Many thanks to the audience and to everyone who was involved. (Written by GISB Student)
