Tobar an Léinn is a small 6 teacher primary school located in the village of Raheen, Co. Laois, Ireland.
We are determined to make Tobar an Léinn a Bully Free Zone.
The pupils from 3rd to 6th Class were surveyed recently about Bullying in Tobar an Léinn. Unfortunately, as you can see from the results below, a lot of pupils felt that bullying was an issue in our school.
During Anti-Bullying Week we have improved our understanding of Bullying - what it is, what to do and what not to do.
We had assembly every morning and each class had the opportunity to put on a short drama on the topic of bullying. As a whole school we discussed the issued raised in each drama.
Each day in our classroom we also learned more about bullying through the Stay Safe Programme.
There was also an information night for parents to help the whole school community to deal with Bullying.
Anti-Bullying Week was a great success. Pupils, parents and teachers are all now better informed and we would this will have a very positive impact in our school environment.
