​Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week

This year St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School has launched the WITS and WITS/LEADS programs with the help of our community liaison Officer Eric Berridge. The WITS Programs bring together schools, families and communities to create responsive environments that help elementary school children deal with bullying and peer victimization.
WITS Primary Program
  • Stands for Walk away, Ignore, Talk it out and Seek help
  • Teaches Kindergarten to Grade 3 children to make safe and positive choices about peer conflict
  • Provides a common language children that the adults in their environment can use to talk about and respond to peer victimization
  • Stands for Look and listen, Explore points of view, Act, Did it work? and Seek help
  • Teaches problem-solving strategies to help Grade 4-6 children deal with conflict and stay safe
  • Provides developmentally appropriate strategies and resources to older elementary students so they can become WITS Leaders in their school
