The Peel District School Board and Derry West Village Public School will recognize Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week during the week of November 17 to 21, 2014.
At Derry West Village we work together to prevent bullying and to intervene when bullying happens.
Students are taught to:
• define bullying
• identify forms of bullying
• identify roles in bullying relationships, for example the person who bullies, the person who is being bullied, and most importantly, the bystander or the trusted advocate
• determine how to safely “choose action” to prevent and intervene in bullying and harassment
• demonstrate character attributes and be a leader to help maintain a positive and safe school community
