Bullying & Cyberbullying Prevention & Intervention
Research and experience show that bullying is a serious issue that has 
​​far-reaching consequences for individuals, their families, peers, and the community at large. If students who are bullied, who bully others, or who witness bullying receive the necessary support, they can learn effective strategies for interacting positively with others and promoting positive peer dynamics. Preventing bullying requires a Whole​-School approach along with insights and input from parents and the community.
