Part of the RSE Day
Following the separation of her parents, Esther moves to a new house and a new school. Unfortunately, being the new girl, she finds it difficult to fit in and quickly becomes the victim of bullying on social media. Through the story, her Grandad learns what is happening and he not only helps her deal with it in school, he also helps Esther to understand that her value is not determined by other people, but by God.
Through this session, students will know that:
• What might seem like harmless communication through social networks can be harmful and painful to others.
• Things in life don’t always happen the way they hope or expect them to.
• They should examine where and how they seek friendship and the consequences of this.
• Their value is not dependent on friends, family, the way people think about them or even their achievements; they can rely on how God sees them
