Bullying Prevention and Intervention at OLA

Bully Prevention and Intervention Awareness Week is November 19-23. Bullying is a form of repeated aggression intended to cause fear, distress or harm to another individual or group of individuals. Bullying occurs in a context where there is a real or perceived imbalance of power between the child who bullies and the child who is victimized (adapted from PPM 144). At Our Lady of the Annunciation, our Bullying Prevention Plan includes: Daily Religious and Family Life Lessons in all grades, TRIBES-philosophy, Monthly Virtues Activities and Recognition, Second Steps-Behaviour Intervention Program, Daily Announcements, Peer Mediators for our Primary Group, VIP & Community Officer Class visits, Healthy Schools Initiatives, BRAVE Bullying Intervention Presentation for Grades 1-8, opportunities for student voice and student involvement, strong parent involvement, Random Acts of Kindness recognition.
