Pillar 2 – Protecting Against Bullying and Promoting Diversity

This week we started the second pillar of our Wellbeing Programme.

This pillar is led by Mr Antonio who is guiding us down this important journey.

Wouldn’t it be a boring world if everyone was exactly the same? If we all looked identical, dressed alike, ate the same foods, spoke the same language, the world would be pretty uninteresting! What makes the world exciting is that we’re all different. Diversity simply means differences.

At CDL we like to celebrate the diverse range of differences that our community brings together. It is important we show tolerance and understanding to those who at first appear different to our own normals. And through showing acceptance to all and kindness to each other, we in turn reduce any worry of bullying within our community.

The first takeaway point of this pillar is;

Integration and diversity are part of the international agenda of the world’s most important institutions. 

When we think of many big companies such as Google, Facebook, Walmart, and Mcdonald’s – we do not think of them as representing one specific person. They represent all and therefore employ a diverse range of staff in order to ensure there is a good representation of all cultures, values and lifestyles.


Globally what we want to achieve with this point is that students understand that Diversity and Integration are present far beyond the school environment or our individual background and that it’s a top priority in the world today. Sometimes, this might be overlooked, and we believe it’s important they acknowledge that the work and reflection being done here is echoed in the World Leading Institutions.

Pillar 1- Reflective Question

We have now reached the end of Pillar 1.

We focused on the two takeaway points of;

Discovering how we can use sport and our hobbies to maintain a healthy mental balance

The importance of a healthy balanced diet for sports and everyday life

As we reflect back on what we have learnt over this Pillar we asked the boys to think about the following question

How have my Friends Helped me in Achieving a Healthy Balanced Lifestyle?

We asked the boys to think about this and then write down their responses so we could make it into a picture collage.
