Over the next two weeks all Junior Cycle Students in Coláiste Muire Cobh will take part Cyclone Anti-Bullying Sessions. The Bullying Prevention Session is a presentation, and discussion on the topic of bullying for our school students. These discussions will be facilitated in our Junior Cycle SPHE Classes.
The Bullying Prevention Session aims to raise awareness about bullying by looking at:
- What bullying is
- The forms it can take such as cyber bullying, social and relational exclusion, verbal, physical, gesture and extortion
- The impact of bullying
Ultimately, The Bullying Prevention Session has three goals to:
- Challenge attitudes about bullying
- Involve students in creating strategies & tools to effectively curb bullying in their school
- Share current research knowledge about bullying behaviour and its effects on young people.
