Odd Socks

Thank you to everyone who supported the Anti-Bullying week with their odd socks.

There is lots of support available through the advice for parents at the Anti Bullying Alliance.

At Buckley Gymnastics Club we have our own codes of practice which are available to view in the gym and on our website

Odd socks help fight against bullying

Odd Socks campaign poster

This year British Gymnastics are supporting the Anti Bullying Alliance’s Anti Bullying Week (11-16 November) and we’re getting involved to celebrate our differences, writes welfare officer Alison.

This year’s message is ‘Change starts with us’ and we want to use this opportunity to highlight that our club does not tolerate bullying.

To support the campaign we are holding an Odd Sock Week in gym classes to celebrate what makes us all unique.

The Anti Bullying Alliance says the event is designed to be fun and an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality – and any old odd socks will do!

Odd Socks Day is actually on Tuesday but we’re running this event from Monday to Saturday so more of our classes can take part and highlight our efforts against bullying.

No classes on 5 November

Reminder: There will not be any classes at Buckley or Gwernaffield gyms on Bonfire night. All parents should have already been notified in advance.  Thanks
