Anti-bullying week will be held from 13 to 17 November 2017.

‘Bullying is Everyone’s Business’

Every learner in every school has the right to learn, free from the fear of bullying, whatever form that bullying may take. Everyone involved in a learner’s education should work together to ensure that learners are free from bullying and schools take an active approach to tackle all forms of bullying, preventing bullying behaviour, as well as responding to incidents. For learners to fully benefit from their school experience, they must feel safe and properly supported.

This is why during Anti-Bullying Week, as well as throughout the year, we continue to raise awareness of anti-bullying with our ‘Bullying is Everyone’s Business’ campaign.  It is critical that everyone is empowered to address bullying.
