Just had a call from the principle of Craigland’s Primary School, Gauteng.
She asked if I can go into the school to talk to the children on the 24th November. Looks like it’s going to be a busy month.
We will be talking about what a disability/challenge is and how we all have one – can’t sing, can’t dance, can’t spell, can’t count, can’t swim, can’t cook plus a host of others, which the kids will help me identify on the day. Then we’ll chat about why it’s not cool to bully each other, as we all have something someone else can bully us about and how we wouldn’t like that.
I give examples from my books Polly’s Piralympics, How Polly Became a Pirate and Polly, Ya Nay Can Fly and we will discuss how we can stand up to bullies, and where to get help.
I am so excited about going to Craigland’s and interacting with the children. I know it is going to be a very special day.
