Pledging to be Bully-Free at BAC
At Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School, teachers and students promoted anti-bullying week. This year’s theme was “Peace”. Students created the “Tree of Peace” where students pledged to be bully free by placing their palm print on the tree. Other events during the week included a presentation to grade 9 students on the effects of cyber-bullying and the role that bystanders can play in decreasing incidents of bullying. Students also posted myths and facts about bullying in each of the classrooms. A new group of students at BAC will soon be trained to become leaders within their school in developing programs and presentations for their fellow classmates.
