Professional Development Workshops:
Anti-Bullying: Wednesday, November 8
Time: 4-6pm, Location: Gilnahirk Primary School, 148 Gilnahirk Road, Belfast
In anticipation of Anti-Bullying week (13-17 November) this free workshop will look at effective strategies to ensure the well-being of students including ways to address and prevent bullying in schools. Aimed at both primary and post primary teachers it will be led by Christine Mahood (Gilnahirk Primary School) and Moe Emerson (Down High School) who recently took part in a study visit to Alberta Canada to learn more about the strategies and principles being adopted in schools there. Focus will also be on the new legislation around the Addressing Bullying in Schools (NI) Act 2016 and the guidance which is currently being developed by the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum. This workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn more about this universally relevant topic and develop strategies which could be put into action in your school.
