The program is an anti-bullying assembly that comes to presentinformation to the students. They discuss what bullying is i.e. verbalabuse and exclusion bullying. They also discuss how bullyingeffects everyone in the school. Students are given an actionbased 4 step plan to help prevent bullying. According to thewebsite this program offers a lot of follow up material to keep thememory of what was learned in the assembly. The school isprovided with 45 lesson plans on different levels for follow up. Thisseems like a great idea to me for all student levels. We can teachthem every day about bullying, but having an outside get theminvolved in an assembly might make the concept click.
