Over the past year Ican has been involved in a number of different projects around the community. A few projects we have done are:
We have created 3 books, most recently we wrote a booklet called ‘What you need to know about bullying’ this booklet was distributed around schools in Feilding. It was written to let people know about what bullying is, the impacts of bullying and how we can help to stop it.
Our other books are New school blues– a story aimed at upper primary about about a boy called Ollie who struggles with bullying at his new school. Our other book Bullying, what its really about– includes writing and art from intermediate age students about their experiences with bullying.
We are actively involved in promoting kindness and anti-bullying in our community and have undertaken many projects, some of these have been…
We created shadow art boards that contain positive messages which are mounted outside the Feilding library.
For childrens day we gathered the communities hand prints to show that they supported our community free from bullying, these amazing pieces of art are also hung inside the Feilding library.
For youth week we ran our annual art competition in schools and we received hundreds of amazing entries. This years theme was kindness and we aim to use much of this art in a new book.
More recently we’ve mounted a new mural outside the Feilding library and we’ve just finished up creating mosaic pavers which will create a beautiful path to go around our shadow boards.
