Guam - It was earlier this week when a legislative resolution was presented to the Bullying Prevention Advisory Group in recognition of its efforts throughout the island's schools and community. And today Governor Eddie Calvo together with the Unified Courts of Guam and the Department of Education took a stand against bullying by proclaiming October as Bullying Prevention Month.
Superintendent Jon Fernandez said, "But as I talk to all of you, I know we're really relying on you to take this message out into your schools to your classmates to be role models for them but also to encourage them to understand why this is an issue and understand what we can do together as a school community to really ensure that bullying doesn't take place in our schools."
A number of activities are set for this month including wearing orange for unity day on October 9, a PSA video and art contest for the bullying affects students, teachers program otherwise known as Basta! and a unity against bullying wave on October 9 at three different locations on island.
