Congratulations OPRF for taking the lead on this very troubling issue. Bullying has so many different forms and there are so many different ways of dealing with it, handling it, living with it (or not). Nothing but good can come from shining light into the darkness. Good luck!

It is so good to see this positive event being held at OPRF promoting awareness of the bullying problem that sadly is prevalent in many schools. Bringing the issue to the front, by confronting rather than hiding the problem, will hopefully help bring this to an end. If just one person is spared from humiliation, the effort is well worth it. Go OPRF!
