Did You Know?

Did you know that bullying is a form of abuse, and therefore is forbidden in our Catholic schools?

Bullying typically consists of direct behaviors, such as teasing, taunting, threatening, hitting, shoving and stealing. But it might also be indirect, such as spreading rumors that cause victims to be socially isolated through intentional exclusion.

Cyberbullying, which involves the use of the Internet or mobile phones to send inappropriate messages and images to or about others, is also behavior that is not tolerated in our Catholic schools.

If you suspect bullying of a child at school, contact the school principal with your concerns.

For particular help, call Assistance Ministry at (213) 637-7650.
