CREATIVE students at Kyabram P-12 were in for a treat last week when Liz Spicer stepped up to address the Monday morning assembly.
And she didn’t come alone, as about a metre away she had a stack of goodies ready to give out to students who made the best posters.
Over the past month the students have been busy creating posters to promote an anti-bullying message in the school.
Thanks to Kyabram chaplaincy and the community, Liz had more than 40 major prizes to give out across both campuses.
From drones, Bluetooth speakers, GoPro cameras and karaoke microphones to vouchers for Kids and Cones and Bennett’s Intersport, she was armed with about $2000 in prizes.
“The competition was really well received by the students as well as the Kyabram community and chaplaincy, it was fantastic,” Liz said.
“It forms part of chaplaincy’s awareness campaign about bullying, which started with the national day against bullying. I wanted to run something that lasted longer than one day so we ran the competition to continue it for the rest of the month.”
But it doesn’t end there, Liz still has to deliberate over the secondary school entries and award prizes before she puts the work on display. ‘‘There are posters, poems and videos the kids have made and we’ll display them in the library to keep spreading the message that bullying isn’t OK,” she said.
