Spirit of Community Assemblies About Bullying, Cyberbullying and Respect at Waterloo Region School

“Respectful students make a respectful school.”

That statement really rings true here in Elmira, Ontario. We found the spirit of community to be alive and well at Floradale Public School in Elmira (Waterloo Region District School Board).

This is a farming community where people really help people. That feeling came through as we spent time with the students today, talking about cyberbullying and respect.  The role-plays  drove home the point that we need to be respectful  in the real world and the virtual world, no matter what. Students at Floradale care about each other. We could feel the passion for respect as we presented the Stand Up Against Bullying assemblies to the students.

Floradale School Principal, Leslie McNabb said, “All three assemblies were phenomenal ! The kids were riveted, the teachers were raving, and the students really GOT the messages.”

  1. After 23 years in juvenile court, I believe that teenagers often learn from the experiences of their peers, not just from being lectured by those in authority. Consequently, “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” was published in January, 2010.

    Endorsed by Dr. Phil on April 8, 2010 [“Bullied to Death” show], “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” presents real cases of teens in trouble over their online and cell phone activities. Civil & criminal sanctions have been imposed on teens over their emails, blogs, text and IM messages, Facebook entries and more. TCI is interactive and promotes education & awareness so that our youth will begin to “Think B4 U Click.”

    Thanks for looking at “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” on http://www.freespirit.com [publisher] or on http://www.askthejudge.info [a free website for & about teens and the law].

    Regards, -Judge Tom
