Safe Positive Schools
Every student at E.D. Feehan Catholic High School has the right to feel safe at school. Bullying is not a normal part of growing up. It doesn't usually go away on its own and often gets worse with time; therefore, bullying needs to be dealt with directly. To stop hurtful behaviour we all need to respond when it occurs and take steps to prevent it. The first step is recognizing when there is a problem.
What is Bullying?
A student is bullied when he or she is repeatedly exposed to negative actions on the part of one or more students causing emotional, psychological, and/or physical harm. These negative actions are intentional and hurtful. Bullying can be verbal, physical, electronic, relational and reactive. Bullying involves an imbalance of power, creates fear and is not gender specific.
