ANTI-BULLYING AWARENESS WEEK
Colaiste Eoin launched a very successful Anti-Bullying Campaign in the school a number of years ago. This year the theme of our anti-bullying week was “Cyber-Bullying”. The idea is to raise awareness of the implications of the actions young people may take when involved in social media. Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter while part of everyday lives for our young people also potentially is powerful and destructive tools. Students participated in an awareness session, competitions and a whole school survey. The potential damage was highlighted and discussed throughout classes. The event culminated in a prize giving ceremony for students who had designed the best posters dealing with the theme. The campaign aims to raise awareness of bullying situations while also equipping staff and students with the tools to resolve these situations.
