Anti-Bullying / School App / Kindergarten 2018?

Anti-Bullying Info

Our October school-wide assembly focussed on anti-bullying and the grade 5 - 8 communities all had a follow-up session in each community by Ms. Rosa, school Principal.  It was an opportunity to speak to the students about being great leaders.  

In short, we spoke about:

  • The difference between Peer Conflict, Mean Behaviour and Bullying
  • The four types of bullying with examples in the school world.
  • Bullying no longer being a 9 - 3:30 affair, as experienced in the past.   It is now a 24/7 issue because of the cyber world.
  • How the online world leaves a footprint and can ultimately affect your future career.
  • What kids can do https://www.stopbullying.gov/kids/what-you-can-do/index.html
    • Treat everyone with respect
    • What to do if you are bullied
    • Protecting yourself from cyberbullying
    • Stand Up for Others
    • Get Involved by being a leader

 

This Canadian site http://www.erasebullying.ca/index.php has it all, including Information for parents:

I didn't realize how much I didn't know when I clicked on Internet Slang -- http://www.erasebullying.ca/parents/parents-helpful-guide.php

 

We also spent time speaking about standing up to bullies.  Please watch this three minute video released just days ago by Burger King and an anti-bullying organization.  It has gone viral for good reason.

Finally, I asked that students remember to never photograph, video or livestream others without their permission.  In fact, at any hockey related event, the use of the camera and live streaming is not allowed.
