On 02.02.2018 in the village of Dermantsi was held one of the biggest events till now, which was part of the campaign of BYF “No Online Hate”. The primary school “Neofit Rilski” organized a month against the aggression and the team of “No Online Hate”, had the opportunity to help them start this initiative.
Together, many students, as well as adults, in positions of responsibility in the administration and the educational sphere, have discussed the seriousness of the problem of aggression through informal methods. Together with the children up to the fourth grade, we watched the film “Inside Out” and drew on “friendship” and “ways to reconcile” as topics.
With students from 5th to 7th grade, we held a forum theater: short scenes played out, dealing with issues related to hate, discussing and seeking solutions as well.
Everything has gone well and we hope for opportunities to hold similar events elsewhere. The problem of aggression in schools, and online, is serious and fairly neglected – we want to change this. Expect soon the drawings of the students to be published !
