The Cadets and Faculty of Robert Land Academy are pleased to announce the launch of a new website with an important message about bullying - www.NoBystanders.me .
This website includes two exciting components:
A video featuring students at Robert Land Academy delivering a compelling message about bullying. Their message - Bullying hurts, and it happens because we let it happen. Take a stand against bullying, and don't be a bystander.
An online pledge asking individuals to add their name in support of this important message.
NoBystanders.me and the video against bullying came out of a leadership course that a group of Cadets from Robert Land Academy participated in earlier this year. Bullying was a major focus of the curriculum. The video captures conclusions the students came to in class and is told by those students in their own words. At the end of the course, each boy signed a pledge promising that he would: (a) not be a bully; and (b) not be a bystander to bullying, and since then every student at Robert Land Academy has signed this pledge.
Taking a stand against bullying is important to Robert Land Academy and its students. We hope it is important to you too.
We ask that you support this message by visiting the website www.NoBystanders.me and watching the video, signing the online petition, sharing this site with people you know, and most importantly, speaking out when you see bullying happen.
