AS part of activities marking the ‘Safeguarding Week’, the management of Chrisland Schools, recently held a programme, to sensitise students on the need to stand against bullying and other vices.

A statement by a member of Chrisland Schools’ Advisory Board, Mr. Akin Fadeyi, explained that the event underscored the commitment of Chrisland to school safety.

Speaking on the occasion, Chrisland Schools Head, Risk, Compliance, Safeguarding and Child Protection, Mrs Kemi Fajemirokun, said: “This week-long event is designed to empower learners and provide them with the necessary tools and knowledge to navigate each term safely and confidently.”

This term’s programme was themed ‘Promoting Total Well-being and Positive Mental Health Through Protection from Cyberbullying and General Bullying’. The objective was to raise awareness about the effects, and protection from all forms of bullying, as well as to sensitise students about the importance of speaking up.

“Additionally, this term’s activities include the re-introduction of safeguarding ambassadors for each level and encouraged to be exemplary in their roles.

During one of the sessions, an organisational psychologist and a parent at Chrisland High School, Ikeja, Maureen Ada-Leonard, encouraged the learners to communicate with their parents at home and counsellors at school.

At the grand finale of the programme at Chrisland High School, Ikeja, Mrs Fajemirokun warned against bullying, saying “If you love, you won’t bully. We believe that an empowered learner is a strong learner, less susceptible to bullying or abuse.”
