The early years of a child's life are crucial for healthy cognitive, social and emotional development. Incorporate the "bully-free" message in the classroom by encouraging tolerance, kindness and bully-free behavior. This programme is flexible and can be implemented in a variety of ways
Bullying consists of ongoing threats, physical attacks, words, gestures, or social exclusion directed at a student or students by a student or group of students who are older, bigger, or more powerful.
This session, using Brutus and Rose, our resident puppets, teaches children to identify the different types of bullying behaviour and to better understand its impacts on others. Using small group discussions and role plays we aim to actively engage the students and equip them with strategies for assertiveness, resisting peer pressure and taking an active bystander position. Creating proactive bystanders has been shown to be the single biggest factor in reducing the level of bullying at schools and, as such, we bring a strong focus to it at this level.
