CHS Promotes Bullying Awareness
Crestview High School promoted bulling awareness within the school during October. This allows students to gain more confidence in standing up for their friends and themselves, alongside with sharing their stories about being bullied or being a witness to others being bullied.
Information and statistics on bullying were posted on the daily announcements. Teachers were encouraged to show, or read the announcements in order to inform students about statistics on bullying. These statistics gave students an idea about the ratio of bullying and how often bullying was reported. Some of the statistics on bullying also stated the percentage of bullying that was not reported at all, as well as who reported the bullying and the victim or witnesses to the scene.
“I have never been bullied, but I have helped someone who was bullied, even though he was an unknown peer to me. It made me personally feel like a better person, and I hope I made his day better.” said Amiya Tucker. Another student Karisia Alvor says “I don’t really let bullies hurt my feelings, when someone says something hurtful I just brush it off like nothing ever happened.” Many students have been bullied on the Crestview campus and they all handle it differently, even if it has a similarity in the way bullies are being stood up to all ways are still different.
