NED is an organization made to prevent bullying. Performers go all around America to do presentations or shows. In early of 2013, a NED performer named Christine, came to Friendship Chamberlain Academy to talk to grades K-5 about how to be a Friendship Champion and how not to be a bully.
Christine’s performance, like many other NED performances, was very entertaining for the mind of the young. Every kid, especially kindergarten students grasped the ideas they were given and had a couple of laughs along the way. She taught us the three factors it takes to be a champion.
1. Never Give Up! No matter how hard things get, you will only be a loser if you don’t try your best.
2. Encourage Others If you ever see someone with their head hung low, just help them.
3. Do your best! If you're trying to learn about something in your class and you feel like you're hopeless, just try your absolute best.
When Christine gave us ideas about bullying my heart warmed. At the assembly I loved the comedy and the morality of it.
