Bullying is an ever-present issue for youngsters and making sure they understand the right way to deal with it has become more important then ever.
West Brook Middle School brought Chris Nutland, the school counselor at East Brook in for an anti-bullying presentation.
Nutland presented his “Back Pack of Burden” to West Brook’s fifth grade students. The presentation addressed the difference between conflict and bullying, as well as identifying bulling behaviors and how to support peers who are going through these difficult situations.
The presentation was said to be light, fun, musical and hands on. The assembly will also be held for the sixth graders at West Brook.
