Preventing bullying is an ongoing team effort between students, the school staff, and everyone at home. You can read about our program and find tips for parents and students on the Anti-Bullying Program page.

You can also watch a series of videos, named Be a Buddy - Not a Bully, made by our Video Production students. The videos, including the one above, demonstrate ways that students can deal with bullies without fighting.
