Anti-Bullying Awareness Week - September 24 to 28, 2012

Anti-Bullying Awareness Week will be observed in all schools in New Brunswick Sept. 24-28.

Each school will plan its own anti-bullying activities for staff and students and with support from the school districts and the department. There are a variety of educational and awareness activities planned that are tailored to the needs of the students. The week also presents an opportunity for staff to plan bullying prevention and intervention strategies for the academic year.

The awareness week is part of a comprehensive set of initiatives the provincial government is undertaking to address bullying in schools, including the creation of two anti-bullying co-ordinator positions and implementing anti-bullying legislation which places greater emphasis on prevention, reporting, investigating and taking action when bullying occurs in schools.
