Andrew Jackson, National Anti-Bullying Co-ordinator, stated: “St. Oliver’s Community School is now the largest Secondary School in the Country. The fact that they are the first secondary school to be awarded Flag Status demonstrates that there are no longer any excuses when it comes to tackling the issue of bullying” .
This year’s ISPCC Shield Campaign which was launched on the 9th March will directly help parents through a range of new online resources and our existing Parent Mentoring Service. 2015 will also see the roll out of our Anti-Bullying Toolkit to clubs and community groups across Ireland. We are aiming to increase the number of schools who are awarded the Shield Flag and the ISPCC will provide direct expert advice to them to “Fly the Flag” against bullying. Bullying is everyone’s business, we are standing up against bullying – are you?
