Bullying Prevention

Bullying Prevention  

Bullying is typically a form of repeated, persistent and aggressive behaviour directed at an individual or individuals that is intended to cause (or should be known to cause) fear and distress and/or harm to another person’s body, feelings, self-esteem, or reputation. Bullying occurs in a context where there is a real or perceived power imbalance.  For a more detailed explanation and differences between bullying, rough play, and conflict, please see page 4 and 5 of the HDSB Bullying Prevention and Intervention Admin Procedure
