Victoria Gardens will join the national ‘Malls & Retailers Unite Against Bullying’ campaign, holding a special event by the VG Kidz Club to educate children about bullying. This free event will take place in the Orchard Playland at Victoria Gardens on Saturday, September 21 from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
The event will feature a special appearance from Captain McFinn the anti-bullying campaign’s mascot as well as the VG Kidz Club mascot, Shadow! Malls & Retailers Unite Against Bullying was designed to bring the community together in order to educate children about bullying, teaching them to be kind to one another and to reject bullying behavior.
This event is an extension of an ongoing program for children, based on the lessons of Captain McFinn and Friends. The stories revolve around the underwater inhabitants of the fictional world of Sand Dusty Reef. Captain McFinn, their hero, is a black-tipped reef shark who used to be a bully but transformed into a hero through the example of others. At the event, children will enjoy a special story time with Captain McFinn that will focus on the anti-bullying message. Children will also be invited to sign the National Anti-Bullying Pledge and participate in a fun coloring activity.
