I am a former resident of Stettler, having four kids in the school system, and moved to another province because of bullying that started 15 years ago.
I am happy that something is being done about the issue, but it needs to start in the school.
What is the school doing for this? Showing a video, having a presentation?
I had two of my four kids bullied in a Stettler school and no one did anything.
That is why we moved to another province, where our last two kids thrived.
Wake up! This (abuse) starts in Middle School and flows to the outside.
Again, what effort is the school taking with this issue?
(Editor’s note: Next Monday, four Stettler schools host renowned Alberta bullying speaker Austen Radowits; Stettler Mayor Dick Richards has declared Nov. 12-17 as Bullying Awareness Week in the town).
