Bullying Prevention and Awareness Week – Nov. 22-26 

From November 22-26 we recognize Bullying Prevention and Awareness Week. At our school, it is important that we provide a caring, safe and inclusive environment that supports the academic achievement and well-being of all students. This week serves as a reminder to our school community about bullying and how to respond.  During this week students will engage in learning activities that reinforce positive behaviours that respond to and prevent bullying. 

Bullying is a form of repeated, persistent 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. Bullying occurs in a context where there is a real or perceived power imbalance.

Bullying can take many forms. Some include:

Physical – hitting, shoving, stealing or damaging property

Verbal – name calling, mocking, or making sexist, racist or homophobic comments

Social – excluding others from a group or spreading gossip or rumours about them

Electronic (commonly known as cyberbullying) – spreading rumours and hurtful comments through the use of cellphones, e-mail, text messaging and through social media

Bullying is never acceptable at our school. All members of our school community are encouraged to stand up and support each other. Should there be concerns about bullying or if you have any questions please contact us. 

You can also report events that happen at school, at school-related activities, online or off school property if they negatively affect a student or the school climate through YRDSB’s Report It tool. This tool is available on the homepage of our school’s website or on  You may also choose to make a report anonymously.

Thank you for helping us create a safe, respectful and inclusive school community.
