WARREN, Mich. – As part of Catholic Schools Week, De La Salle Collegiate is raising awareness of the issue of bullying among children, especially in high schools.
During the week of Jan. 27, De La Salle staff and students will observe Anti-Bullying Week from Jan. 28-31. Children of all ages as well as parents are encouraged to get involved in the events and take part in activities that will help shine a light on the problem of bullying and ways to help resolve the issue.
Parents and teachers will also be asked to play an active role in preventing bullying, with the main focus on demonstrating different ways to support young people and provide an open platform for them to talk about any issues they have with bullying. The main role we can provide is creating a safe environment where young people can feel like they are able to talk about their feelings and problems and will receive support.
De La Salle will cap Anti-Bullying Week with a Positive You school assembly on Jan. 31. All five of the school's winter varsity teams will participate in the awareness week by wearing special jerseys at their games/meets during the week.
Special De La Salle Anti-Bullying T-shirts are on sale for $20 in The Pilot Hangar. Admission to basketball (Jan. 28), wrestling (Jan. 29) and hockey (Jan. 31) will be free to those wearing the Anti-Bullying T-shirts.
Beginning Jan. 22, T-shirts will be sold by De La Salle's Student Council in the main hallway during Power Hour.
