During the week of 25 April to Friday 29 April, St James had its very first “Bullying Week and teachers discussed bullying in detail. The focus on St James having a “Zero-Tolerance to Bullying Policy” formed the basis of all the discussions, coping mechanisms, and what to do if you are bullying yourself or being bullied.
Mr Tim Barry, a psychologist from Hilton, gave a talk on bullying on 15 March 2022. He spoke about the witness having the most power in the case of bullying. Mr Barry explained the difference between actual long-term bullying and everyday conflict situations. He gave some practical advice on how to deal with online bullying as well.
“I love this school, because they do not allow bullying. You are allowed to be yourself here!”
