National Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week
National Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week is an annual event marked around the world to boost awareness among students, staff, parents, and community members about bullying and ways to reduce and prevent incidents of it in their schools. In Alberta, Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week is recognized the third week in November each year.
As EIPS students and staff will be off for Fall Break November 14-18, some schools are recognizing the week November 7-11 and many have activities planned the week of November 21-25.
Within EIPS, students and staff will spend time discussing ways to foster healthy relationships, discourage intolerances, and encourage the inclusion of everyone.
