Committed to ending
bullying at school
We've launched a campaign to encourage
communication between parents, teachers,
and children to prevent bullying at school
In 2018, our Company took yet another step in their commitment against bullying. We launched the #Quétalenelcole (How are things at school?) campaign, which is designed to promote dialog between parents, teachers, and children to help prevent, detect, and put an end to bullying, with the help of psychologists and experts.
Our aim was to make the journey to and from school a time for parents to talk and connect with their children. Through a website, psychologist Patricia Ramírez offers guidelines that help us understand what children go through, talk to them, and know how to act when we notice this problem.
In addition, in October Repsol's corporate headquarters hosted an event in which five lecturers addressed the issue of bullying at school from different perspectives, touching on the tools needed to prevent, detect, and act in cases of bullying.
Visit by Repsol Honda Team riders
Strengthening the bond between teachers and students is one of the most efficient strategies in the fight against bullying at school. With a view to encouraging said bonds, we launched a contest aimed at combating bullying at school. The winning institution, the Salesianos Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza school, was visited by riders Marc Márquez, Dani Pedrosa, Toni Bou, and Takahisa Fujinami.
In November 2018, Repsol Honda Team MotoGP riders Marc Márquez and Dani Pedrosa, and trial riders Toni Bou and Takahisa Fujinami, visited the Salesianos Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza school, winner of the 5th edition of the "Repsol Team looks for a school" contest, which, for the second consecutive year, focused on the fight against bullying at school.
More than 30 schools across Spain signed up for this initiative impelled by Repsol to combat bullying at school. Students who participated were asked to submit a video with an original piece of music that underscored the importance of putting an end to bullying at school.
The riders worked with rapper El Momo and beat boxer Grison, who showed off their spoken word improvisational skills, asking Márquez, Pedrosa, Bou, and Fujinami questions about bullying which they answered, speaking of communication, teamwork, mutual help, trust, respect, tolerance, taking action, and reporting bad behavior.
This was the last of a series of actions that Repsol carried out in 2018 to combat bullying at school, such as the social network campaign #QuéTalEnElCole (How are things at school?) and the event held in October at the Repsol campus, which brought together experts, psychologists, teachers, and parents to try to explain the different tools used in preventing, detecting, and fighting bullying.
