On February 24 2016 from 10:00AM-2:00PM the Kitimat RCMP participated in Anti-Bully Day at the Haisla School in the Kitmaat Village. Kitimat RCMP Constables Rebeckah Draht and Constable Jordan Chaplin, along with RCMP victim services liaison Leisl Kaberry, participated in multiple group activities with students that highlighted bully awareness.
Constable Chaplin and Kaberry also gave a presentation to the school that focused on cyber bullying and how social mediums such as Facebook can be used. The presentation was interactive and allowed the students to use their cell phones to connect with a “Bully Text” in which a student was sent a bullying scenario via text. Students were then required to come up with a solution to the scenario, allowing them to learn about this topic in a dynamic way.
