Anti-buylling plea to schools and groups

Loal schools and youth groups are being encouraged to register for this year's Anti-Bullying Week 2016 (14-18 November) and submit entries for its creative arts competition before Friday 7 October.

This year’s theme is ‘Together We Are Stronger’, urging everyone to think about what it means to have strength of character, how strength can be used for good and how we can empower parents and carers to work together with schools to tackle bullying.

Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum Chair, Celine McStravick, said: “We are once again urging teachers, youth workers, parents and carers to speak to children and young people about this year’s Anti-Bullying Week theme . . . By registering online at they will receive their free resource pack, which includes presentations, activity plans, project briefs and ABW16 themed posters, all designed to help stimulate conversation and debate.”
