12-16 November Friendship Week at Claygate Primary

Claygate Martial Arts (one of the leading European clubs for Kuk Sool Won) visited Claygate Primary earlier this week and gave a presentation to our school children on the importance of respecting others in order to build friendships and therefore as an anti-dote to bullying.

Given that the Anti-Bullying Alliance has announced 'Choose Respect' as the official theme for 2018 and that respect is one of the key fundamental values taught in Kuk Sool Won, there is an obvious shared outlook and belief system.

In the UK, following a consultation with over 800 children, teachers and members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, it emerged that a top priority was showing that bullying is a behaviour choice and that children and young people can set a positive example by option to respect each other at school, in the homes and communities and online.
