Bullying Prevention and Intervention Focus

During Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week - November 21 to 27, 2021, Joshua Creek Public School learned how they can prevent bullying. Our Community Officer joined our Intermediate students for their assembly and encouraged them to "T.H.I.N.K. before you act." Our Bullying Prevention and Intervention Team is working on developing our school's annual action plan. Here are some resource you might be interested in:
