On Oct. 26, students attended an assembly about consent, took the California Healthy Kids Survey and participated in a workshop centered around being an upstander and not a bystander. The three activities took 90 minutes each and students were dismissed at 1:30 p.m.
“I think it was a really good idea for [the administration]to put on this event because I think it’s important take a break from all the academic pressure at school and it’s important to embrace a different side of learning,” junior Anna Bronzini said. “I think the assembly was really important and engaging, so people will probably take that to heart.”
Though the activities went smoothly, attendance was disappointingly low, as many students chose not to show up in light of there being no classes.
“I’ve heard a lot of sentiment that the people who didn’t show up were the ones who needed this most,” junior Jeffrey Hilbert said. “I don’t know if that holds any water or not but it’s definitely a shame that a lot of people are missing out on this because it was pretty constructive for everybody, I believe.”
