BULLYING AWARENESS DAY: Monday 15th September 2014
On Bullying Awareness Day, we unequivocally re-affirm to each other that bullying is unacceptable at Blackrock, be it Physical, Verbal, Written or Online.
The classroom presentation featured a Talk by the Clare Hurling Manager, Davy Fitzgerald, in which he shared his personal experience of being bullied as a youngster and the long-term impact this had.
Questions I ask of you:
– Do you ignore members of the school community?
– Have you made new pupils feel welcome?
– Have you shown disrespect for members of staff in the classroom, corridor, or refectory?
A focus of our day is AWARENESS and not to stand idly by if we are aware of unacceptable behaviour. If you are the victim of bullying or the witness to bullying, be it from name-calling to isolation or online, have the confidence to
TELL …TELL … TELL
be it the Dean, a Teacher, the Counsellor, your Parents, an Adult or a Friend.

I thank Ms McGee, the Deans, English Teachers of 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th Year and the T.Y. Maths Teachers for their facilitation of the presentation.
Each student is entitled to an education free from fear and intimidation.
Bullying is not tolerated in Blackrock College.
