By BBN Staff: Over 60 students from San Ignacio, Santa Elena and the surrounding communities participated yesterday in an anti-bullying training at the Aguada Hotel in Santa Elena, Cayo.
The event was hosted by the Child Advisory Board in collaboration with the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Council and the Department of Youth Services.
The children from the different primary and high schools are being trained to become anti-bullying ambassadors.
President of the Child Advisory body, Lea Gonzalez told BBN that the anti-bullying campaign is to address the issue of bullying in the schools and to bring awareness of the negative effects of bullying.
Santa Elena Primary School student, Sinae Garcia told our newsroom that she wants to help victims of bullying.
“ My purpose to participate is to stop people from bullying, some people have bad thoughts because they get bullied and some of them feel left out and we want that to change so that not everyone is left out and so they can have friends and continue to be bright and respectful person in life,” she stated.
Saint Ignatius High School student Jazmine Mcculloch told us that in the age of social media, bullying is common among high school students and she wants to assist victims and to discourage other students from engaging in bullying.
