#chooseACTION on Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week

#chooseACTION on Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week

The Peel District School Board will recognize Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week during the week of Nov. 20 to 24, 2017.

This year, we ask our Peel community to '#chooseACTION to be inclusive' in their classes, offices, schools, or communities, in order to make these spaces better places for everyone. The Peel Board would like to hear about the big and small actions, the pledges, the promises and the attitudes that our Peel community value, and ask that you take a moment to share your #chooseACTION moments on social media.

Across the Peel board, schools use many programs and initiatives to prevent bullying and to intervene when bullying happens. Though the programs vary, their messages are consistent. Students are taught to:

  • define bullying
  • identify forms of bullying
  • identify the shifting roles in bullying relationships, for example the person who bullies, the target, the bystander or the trusted advocate
  • determine how to safely "choose action" to prevent and intervene in bullying and harassment 
  • understand that bullying is a relationship problem with relationship solutions
  • determine positive ways to interact with others in an accepting, inclusive way
  • demonstrate character attributes and be a leader to help maintain positive and safe school communities

    Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week is one of the key items contained in Bill 13: The Accepting Schools Act, that came into effect on Sept. 1, 2012. For more information, visit www.peelschools.org/aboutus/safeschools/bullying or www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/safeschools/prevention.html.
