Bullying Awareness: Reclaiming Our Schools©, is a comprehensive teacher and support staff resource, an in-school awareness campaign, and a series of student-centered and professional development workshops, that was co-created and co-authored by two Ontario Certified Teachers, Vanessa Hamilton, OCT and Jeff Reati, OCT, as a means of educating people on the reality of the adverse, and often long-term, effects of bullying on our students and families, schools, and greater communities.
Through education and the regular integration of bullying awareness into classrooms and curriculum, we aim to establish an awareness of bullying behaviour in all of its forms, while providing sound strategies for the implementation of education and intervention in schools, and tangible, teacher friendly lesson plans and resources.
Bullying Awareness: Reclaiming Our Schools© is supported by the Ontario Ministry of Education, the Ontario Teachers Federation, The Ontario College of Teachers, Thames Valley District School Board, amongst other local, provincial and national programs and initiatives. For information on additional supporters and partners with BA:ROS, please see Community Relationships and BA:ROS.
