National Bullying Awareness

One of our value statements is"WE BELONG" which reads: "A sense of belonging is a team effort where, as we continue to grow and change, the traditions of individuals and families who live, work and play in our communities are celebrated. A safe learning atmosphere where we connect and learn from one another will be shaped by those who work and study in our school division. Diversity is celebrated and welcomed in a caring environment."

April 9, 2014 is Red Cross Day of Pink. Many schools are hosting special activities this week to recognize and prevent bullying. Information is key to understanding. For a provincial Red Cross perspective, click here.

The Ministry of Education has released details of "Saskatchewan's Action Plan to Address Bullying and Cyberbullying" on November 14, 2013; the press release is available here.

Further information/resources on anti-bullying are available on the Ministry of Education website.
