Stepping Up: Anti-Bullying Seminar

The Tandem team strives to make a difference in the community of Côte-des-Neiges – Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. Their objective is to increase the sense of security of its citizens and to teach them strategies to reduce their risk of becoming victims of crime.

At Kells Academy, we recognize the importance of promoting tolerance within the student body and giving them tools to prevent bullying.

Our Grade 7 classes welcomed Joseph Lambert from the Tandem organization, a group that works on creating a safer environment in the Montreal area; it was an informative and engaging workshop.

Continuing with the bullying awareness and prevention theme that both classes delved into this term, Joseph engaged the group in an interactive discussion about the importance of maintaining a safe space in school and the classroom.

Joseph’s closing message resonated with the group as he implored students to be part of the solution, not the problem. He asked everyone to own their actions, question the role they play in this issue, and to step-up and make a change.
