The Bully Project

The BULLY Project is the social action campaign inspired by the award-winning film BULLY. The Movie sparked an international movement to stop bullying that is transforming kids’ lives and changing a culture of bullying into one of empathy and action. The goal is to reach 10 million kids or more, causing a tipping point that ends bullying in America.

“Not In Our School” Anti-Bullying Campaign

It is well known to all the great problem that is being generated in schools by the form of violence or bullying. Our school has organized a campaign against these practices through motivation of values such as respect, friendship, solidarity, and other values that awaken in our students the importance of overcoming obstacles as the lack of control, anger, and violence, among others.

We intend to extend throughout the school year work on the identification of issues and the preservation of the physical and mental health of our students.
