Sussex, Canada school suspends 2 bullies: mother


CANADA — A Sussex, N.B., mother says she is relieved that two bullies who have taunting her daughter and a friend have been suspended indefinitely from a local high school.

Annette Gregg and her daughter, Sam, 16, and Amanda Taylor, 15, spoke out this week about problems with bullies at Sussex Regional High School.

Going to school had become so difficult for Sam Gregg and Taylor that they were planning to transfer to a different school, and they needed teaching assistants to escort them to classes to avoid being taunted by the bullies.

But it now appears the threats and taunts may end and the two Grade 10 students won’t have to leave their high school.

After another incident on Tuesday, Annette Gregg said, the school has suspended the bullies indefinitely.

Paul Smith, a spokesman for School District 6, said privacy issues prevent him from discussing the Sussex situation.

But Smith said all bullying situations are complex, and he’s confident things will be resolved at the school level. Full story.
