Bullying



Bullying and Cyber-Bullying are potential areas of concern in every school. While ‘traditional’ or ‘schoolyard’ bullying still presents as an issue, a new and sinister dimension has been added in the form of Cyber-Bullying.


Our programme:

  • Encourages the children to become positively involved in promoting an environment which minimises the danger of Bullying or Cyber-Bullying.
  • Outlines to the children a simple profile of the ‘bully’ and the ‘victim’.
  • Alerts the pupils, through role-play and art, as to the devastating impact Bullying can have on a victim.
  • Educates the children on prevention strategies which help them stay safe and directs them in seeking support if they become a victim.
  • Equips the pupils with simple confidence building skills.
  • Informs the children as to the anti-bullying structures currently present at every level of their school.
  • Complements P.S.N.I. basic information classes on preventing Bullying.
