‘Rising Above’ – A film about bullying and those who rose above

Please see the note that went home on Thursday with students and return forms and money to your child’s homeroom teacher by MONDAY, MAY 1st.

In partnership with the Canadian Red Cross, YLCC Media is excited to offer an incredible learning opportunity for grade 7 and 8 students of BJH on Monday, May 8th.

Rising Above is an engaging documentary film that sheds light on the issue of bullying within our schools and communities. It tells the stories of ten Canadians who have either been the targets of bullying or someone who bullied others in the past—sharing their stories of hope, growth and courage in overcoming and rising above the challenges they faced.
