Graphic for Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, November 21 - 27, 2021 with BWDSB logo and image of child sitting against brick wall with head buriedBluewater District School Board students, staff, families, and partners are working together to stand up and show their commitment to safe learning and working environments.  Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, from November 21 to 27, 2021, is another opportunity to align our work with our strategic priority of a ‘safe supportive learning community’, where all students and staff can grow, achieve, and succeed.

There are several examples from recent months that demonstrate how our schools and work sites are promoting acceptance, inclusion, and equity on an ongoing basis.  Some of these include the unveiling of Reconciliation Hall at Saugeen District Senior School, Treaties Recognition Week, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation/Orange Shirt Day, the addition of free accessible personal hygiene products in designated washrooms across our board, Pride Month, diplomat/humanitarian Stephen Lewis’ presentation to students on the power of education, Mental Health Week, and Pink Shirt Day, among many others.

As students and staff coordinate anti-bullying awareness activities throughout the week, we are pleased to share the following links and resources on this topic.
