This school year, our FUSE Anti-Bullying and Online Safety Programme has partnered with Fighting Words, an organisation who provides free programmes and mentoring in creative writing and related arts to as many children, young adults and adults with additional needs.
Through this partnership, Primary Schools who complete the FUSE programme are offered supplementary creative writing workshops. These workshops are fun and a positive and powerful means of self-expression. They allow the children to explore their imaginations through writing – to talk, think and write creatively about the core Bullying and Online Safety topics covered in the FUSE Programme thus embedding the key learnings and deepening their knowledge in this critical area.
We are delighted to share with you a poem written by Shonagh Cunniffe a 5th Class pupil of Drumcondra NS which evidences the positive collaboration between FUSE and Fighting Words.
