On Friday, March 7, the ISPCC is holding the 3rd ISPCC Anti Bullying Shield Campaign.

As part of the campaign, the ISPCC will be holding a ‘ Day of Action’ in which we are asking people in Offaly to help raise funds to develop this vital service in schools across the county, by selling the ISPCC Shield Pin for a few hours in your local area on the day. You can help the ISPCC spread the message that bullying is unacceptable and needs to be stopped.

Bullying is not a new phenomenon. It has impacted, and continues to impact, greatly on the lives of many of our children, having not only short term, but also long term effects. Standing up against bullying is not something we can do alone, it is something that the whole community has a role in dealing with.

For more information on how you can help us stand up against bullying in Offaly, contact Emma on 085 804 2724 or go to the website: www.ispcc.ie
