This annual event raises awareness in our students and staff around bullying and the impact it has both on individuals as well as the broader learning environment. During Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, our schools focus on promoting a safer learning environment for all students.
While YRDSB schools engage in bullying awareness and prevention every week of the school year, we recognize this time as a valuable opportunity to raise awareness in parents and the local community. It is important to note that everyone has a role to play in bullying prevention. Students, parents, teachers and school staff are encouraged to work with their Well-Being team, school council, student council and community partners to promote and facilitate participation in Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week.
Schools that have bullying prevention and intervention strategies in place foster a positive learning and teaching environment that supports well-being and helps students reach their full potential.
Providing caring, safe and supportive learning environments are at the heart of all of the York Region District School Board’s efforts to promote student achievement, well-being and success.
