PRESS: December 31, 2015- Bunn Anti-Violence Group Receives Grant to Aid Efforts– The Franklin Times
Bunn High Schoo SAVE chapter created a homecoming float with the purpose of informing other students about SAVE’s purpose. The float displayed the SAVE banner and club members handed out brochures and flyers promoting SAVE. For America’s Safe School Week the high school’s SAVE members placed purple and orange ribbons on lockers to make students aware of the SAVE group and what they stand for. The school also conducted a Safe School Survey which determined if Bunn High School students felt generally safe while in school.
With National Youth Violence Prevention week coming up in April 2016, Bunn High School plans to have their SAVE chapter become involved with Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina to start a pinwheel garden. Students will have the option to purchase a $1 pinwheel and “plant” it in front of the school to show support for the effort to stop child abuse. SAVE members will also pass out brochures that outline the dangers of bullying and the impact it can have on family and friends. The chapter will invite a guest speaker (TBA) to speak about teen dating violence.
For National Youth Traffic Safety Month upcoming in May, Bunn High School’s SAVE chapter will host a VIP for VIP (Vehicle Injury Prevention for a Very Important Person) program that will focus on Prom night, summer breaks, and the dangers of drinking and driving. Along with this students will be asked to sign a no drinking and driving pledge for prom. Bunn High School SAVE members will spend a morning handing out Smarties to students who are wearing their seatbelts and DumDum lollipops to those who are not. The high school also plans to send a message to the community about safe driving by posting a wreck at the entrance to the town with a sign reminding not to text and drive.
The SAVE Advisor for Bunn High School is Officer Ramos.
