Taking the Pledge for Zero Tolerance
Grade 9 and 12 students at St. Charles College spent a morning this week shedding tears together to educate and raise awareness about bullying. The highly emotional Targeting Zero Tolerance day was organized by the grade 12 Leadership class.
It’s the third annual event which consists of students’ presenting bullying statistics and a documentary style video they compiled along with organizing break-out sessions with students to answer a series of “what if” questions.
Mrs. Beverly Belanger teaches the Leadership class, and oversees what has become a yearly event. She says “it brings seniors and grade 9’s together in order to build peer relationships and grow positive school climate.”
