When Life Throws You an Apple, Peel It!

PIctured are Grade 4 students, Katrina Pellatt and Kayleigh MacNeil holding their peeled apples.

November 27, 2012 - During Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week students at St Bernadette school "got to know their apples" by touching them, throwing them and rolling them around. They were then asked to describe their apples. Students described their apples as bruised, dented, marked up, big and small. After a few minutes, the apples were collected, peeled and dropped into a basket. Children were then asked to find their apple within the pile. Remarkably, most children couldn't find their apples. "They all looked the same!" students exclaimed. This activity allowed students to discover that, just like the apples, on the outside people, too, come in different sizes and shapes. But, underneath the outer layer, just like the apples, people are all the same. We have the same hopes and fears and dreams.
