Bullying Awareness Week is a dedicated time to address bullying in all its forms within our schools. This year, the Government of Alberta has chosen the theme "Where to Turn," which lets everyone know there is always help available. Our aim for this Bullying Awareness Week is to raise awareness that students and staff can always turn to someone for support in their schools and workplaces if they are or have experienced bullying.
Our ongoing efforts focus on bullying prevention. Knowing how to intervene safely and build strong connections creates safer, more welcoming schools, workplaces, and communities.
To delve deeper into bullying awareness, prevention, and support, you can explore the resources available on our website and through the Government of Alberta:
If you think your child is experiencing bullying at school, please bring up your concerns with your child’s teacher.
If you need additional guidance or support to address bullying, contact the Bullying Helpline at 1-888-456-2323, available 24/7. You can also access online chat support from noon to 8 PM at alberta.ca/bullying-find-supports.aspx.
We always welcome parents or guardians to follow our concerns and complaints process if their child is experiencing bullying at school. Let’s continue to work together to create safe, respectful, and inclusive schools and workplaces for everyone in our community.
