Bullying Program

Olyweus Bullying Prevention Program

Hope Lutheran School has incorporated the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program as a whole-school program aimed at preventing, or reducing bullying. Even with a school’s best efforts, bullying can affect the safety and well-being of the entire student population. In order to stop bullying, it needs to be addressed at every level of a student’s experience.

The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program is designed to improve peer relations and make school a safer, more positive place for students to learn and develop.

Goals of the program include:

  • Reducing existing bullying problems among students
  • Preventing new bullying problems
  • Achieving better peer relations at school

Hope school actively supports and promotes four rules in dealing with bullying:

  1. We will not bully others
  2. We will try to help students who are bullied
  3. We will try to include students who are left out
  4. If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home
