Anti-Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week

Anti-Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week

Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God” Matthew 5:9

As a Christian school and community we value cultural diversity. During the last week of November, school-wide activities will take place to help promote school safety, kindness and a sense of belonging in each student.

What is Bullying?

If we are going to prevent bullying, we have to know what it is. The ministry of education has defined bullying as:
Bullying is typically a form of repeated and aggressive behaviour directed at an individual or individuals that is intended to cause (or should be known to cause) fear and distress and/or harm to another person’s body, feelings, self-esteem, or reputation.
There are four common types of bullying:
1. Verbal Bullying— name calling, sarcasm, teasing, spreading rumours, threatening, making references to one’s culture, ethnicity, race, religion, gender,

2. Social Bullying—mobbing, scapegoating, excluding others from a group, humiliating others, gestures or graffiti intended to put others down.

3. Physical Bullying—hitting, poking, pinching, chasing, shoving, coercing, destroying, unwanted sexual touching.

4. Cyber Bullying—using the internet or text messaging to intimidate, put down or spread rumours about someone.

 

Preventing Bullying

We can all play a role in preventing bullying. We must all take action.
If you are a student:
– Be part of the solution
– Tell someone you trust if you’re being bullied
– If you are watching a bullying incident, you are part of the problem. Have the power to help.
– Always ask for help. Adults will help and you will find one who will listen and act.

 

If you are a parent:

– Listen to your children
– Be a positive role model
– Set a good example, reinforce positive behavior.
– Set consequences
– If someone tells you bullying is happening, take action to stop it.
– Make bullying unacceptable.

The MCFS student of the month is chosen based on qualities such as character, leadership, and citizenship, not necessarily academics. The student of the month must have the following characteristics:
The student of the month must also display excellent citizenship by aligning him/herself with MCFS school values. Lastly, he/she shows exemplar character through his/her compassion, honesty, trustworthiness, responsibility, optimism and loyalty in creating a positive school environment. Each month, the classroom teacher, special area teachers, and administrators can nominate students for that month. One boy and one girl can be selected from each grade level as long as they have met the criteria. Our goal is to have 100% student participation by June in each grade. The students will have demonstrated the “Big Three”:
  • Do the Right Thing
  • Do Your Personal Best
  • Treat People Right
