Today I was blessed to spend the morning at Holy Trinity for the Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week launch. The students from Assumption School lead our break out session which was about the effects of social media. It was so great to hear about the positive effects of social media as well, since cyber bullying of course would be the negative effect.
I started the week with our Religion class and this Cyberbullying video. A wonderful discussion ensued with my class, and I noticed so many had stories to share of their parents being bullied but they have been very lucky to not have had the same experiences. I spoke to them about how I have so much hope for their generation.
I really hope our school is inspired to submit a video, poster and song! There's a lot of talent at Ascension and I know we could creatively represent this year's message which also ties into mental health. Here are our system winners from last year. Winners 2014
