School bullies beware
VICTIMS OF bullying will soon be able to report it anonymously so action can be taken against the perpetrators.
That’s because the Sprigeo American online system has been implemented here to track down instances of bullying.
Project manager of the Maria Holder Memorial Trust, Donna Clarke, said the system has been launched in the four schools involved in the pilot programme – Grantley Adams Memorial, Lester Vaughan, Frederick Smith Secondary and Wesley Hall Infants.
“This means a student that has been bullied, or knows of a related instance of bullying, can go and access the Sprigeo online reporting system. There is a form which they can complete,” she said, and assured that the students’ identities would be protected.
“It is important to know that all of their information is confidential so a student does not need to fear that another student will find out they have reported bullying,” she added. (MK)
