Anti Bullying Week: November 14 – November 18
Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me? If only that was true, words can hurt a lot. Bullying is no laughing matter.
Anti-Bullying week is all about spreading awareness, in the hope that people will think twice about the words that they speak to others and their actions.
