Preventative Bullying Policy

Today in St Dominic’s the preventative Bullying policy workshop took place for all 3rd, 5th and 6th year students. Sr. Liz spent a session with the classes discussing different forms of bullying, with particular emphasis on cyberbullying. Cyberbullying can be detrimental to a person’s mental and physical wellbeing. “In Ireland an estimated 31% of primary students and 16% of secondary school students experience bullying, putting over 200,000 children at risk from the damaging effects of this growing problem”(IEPA , 2013). The 3rd year Home Economics classes got actively involved in the workshop and hopefully the girls will reflect on what they have learned today and to take action in their lives. Take a look at this short video girls  Cyberbullying: there is a way out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkG00Czb4ho.
