Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week

November 19-25, 2017
 
During Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, students, school staff and parents are encouraged to learn more about bullying and its effect on student learning and well-being.
 
Bullying is defined as a form of repeated, persistent and aggressive behaviour directed at an individual or individuals that is intended to cause (or should be known to cause) fear and distress and/or harm to another person's body, feelings, self-esteem or reputation. Bullying occurs in a context where there is a real or perceived power imbalance.
 
Schools are encouraged to use this opportunity to explain the different forms bullying can take. These include:
  • Physical – hitting, shoving, stealing or damaging property
  • Verbal – name calling, mocking, or making sexist, racist or homophobic comments
  • Social – excluding others from a group or spreading gossip or rumours about them
  • Electronic (commonly known as cyberbullying) – spreading rumours and hurtful comments through the use of cellphones, e-mail, text messaging and social networking sites
 
For information and resources, visit the TCDSB Bullying Awareness and Prevention Website: https://www.tcdsb.org/ProgramsServices/SafeSchools/BullyingAwarenessAndPrevention/Pages/default.aspx
