4th of November 2021
International Day against Violence and Bullying at School including Cyberbullying
We will be celebrating this day in St. Joseph’s.
We have workshops and fun competitions taking place throughout the week.
We want to raise awareness in our children and school community of how dangerous and damaging cyber-bullying can be and how it is on the rise, not only in our community but everywhere.
Since the Covid pandemic the lives and education of our children have increasingly moved online. This has been great for our children but, it is also increasingly putting them at risk of online violence and cyber –bullying.
We hope all our class activities and events this week will spread awareness about this serious issue.
Check out the UNESCO website for very useful resources on online violence and cyber bullying for children and families.
As ever, please do not hesitate to call the school if your child is exposed to any form online bullying… knowing and getting support is half the battle.
