The Ministry of Education is hosting the fourth Student First Anti-Bullying Forum as part of Saskatchewan’s Action Plan to Address Bullying and Cyberbullying.
The theme of this year’s forum, Our School Includes Everyone, focuses on positive and supportive school climates and student mental well-being. The forum is open to students in grades 6 and up. Resources are geared towards students in grades 6 to 9.
This year, the forum resources have been designed to give teacher’s flexibility and choice in how and when they participate. Activities may be used with whole class or small groups and presented at different times to fit class schedules. Online resources and activities will be available from February 6, 2017 until the end of the school year. Teachers and group facilitators are encouraged to schedule activities between February 6 and 17, 2017 to lead up to Red Cross Pink Day.
For more information, and to register, please check out the Student First Anti-Bullying Forum page on the I Am Stronger website. iamstronger.ca/pages/sasksf17-landing-page
