November 21-27 is Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week 

November 21-27 is Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week in Ontario. This is an opportunity for us all to reinforce clear and positive messages that bullying is not acceptable in our schools and communities. 

Bullying prevention and intervention is all about relationship and community building and maintenance. Knowing our students and families is foundational. We need to listen to continue to learn from our students about how to build community and cultures in which each student feels welcome and has the opportunity to realize their full potential. In teaching about, and modeling healthy relationships we are preventing incidents of bullying; supporting those affected by bullying; as well as supporting those who engage in bullying behaviours. Here is an excellent resource for students from Kids Help Phone.

Dates of Significance 

Saturday, November 20th is World Children’s Day and National Child Day, and Transgender Day of Remembrance. A recording of Thursday’s webinar will be available online shortly. In addition, November 25th is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and marks the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.
