Photos: Students Join In Anti-Violence Campaign

January 21, 2019 | 0 Comments

In support of the “Bermuda Wears Red anti-violence campaign”, Somersfield Academy students wore red to school today [Jan 21]. A group of students from both the Children’s House, Primary and Secondary Divisions ring a bell at approximately 2.00 p.m. at the school’s Peace Pole.

Carlos Symonds, Head of School, said: “Our diverse Somersfield Academy family is a part of the larger Bermuda family. We share the community concern that the violence, hurt and pain that is currently occurring in our small community is a family emergency. When a family emergency occurs, it is expected that family members will rally to support each other.”

“John Donne placed it in graphic terms when he said: ‘No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main … any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.’

“This is what is inculcated in our students, as we follow our mission to develop socially conscious independent thinkers. As such, today we symbolically rang our school bell out of respect for the families that have suffered loss over the course of the year.”
