TIME?HAS COME for legislation governing bullying which has become a scourge in the schools.
This call has come from Shawn Clarke, Chief Executive Officer of Supreme Counselling for Personal Development, who are facilitators of the Olweus Prevention Bullying Programme in conjunction with the Maria Holder Memorial Trust.
“Legislation can’t be far off. It is something that will certainly have to be looked at. At the moment, there is nothing governing bullying which is a big issue.
“We need some form of uniformity in relation to bullying. Right now, one principal deals with the issue one way and another principal deals with it in his own way,” Clarke said at a press briefing this morning. (MK)
