Students and staff at Laval High School in Placentia, N.L., are trying to stop bullying with a new DVD called Faces of Bullying.
Written by the school’s teachers and guidance counsellors working with drama students, the video presents fictional testimonials based on the teens’ real-life experiences.
One of the testimonials: “It’s the same routine every day. You know, kicked out of my seat on the bus, smashed into the lockers. Sometimes I can take it, but there are other moments where I just feel like I’m going to explode.”
Those lines are spoken by student Shane Regular, playing the part of a bully victim — a role he’s familiar with, since he knows what it’s like to be a target. Full story.
