► Social and Emotional Team

Did you know that seven out of every 10 students have been negatively affected by bullying in their school career? Did you know that girls are often bullied more-often than boys? Are you aware that 83 percent of all students who have been bullied feel that bullying has hurt their self-esteem? EIGHTY THREE PERCENT. Where will it stop?
