Bullying is an
unwanted and repeated or continuous aggressive behavior by one or more students
intended to harm another student. The bullying phenomenon can by no means be neglected
as it is a sensitive issue that directly affects the circumstances surrounding a
student and may possibly widen the gap between him and his school community if
not a well-planned methodology is used to deal with it.
Based on this,
the Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the Supreme Council for
Motherhood and Childhood and with the participation of a number of local and
federal entities, launched the National Bullying Prevention Week campaign. The
campaign featured a number of workshops and lectures given by specialists on
the steps to be taken to deal with bullying. Another campaign was launched on
social media with the aim of guiding students and their parents to the strategies
that they should follow to combat bullying.
Objective of consultation
- The Ministry of Education seeks to know how far all categories of the society are satisfied with the programs presented during the National Bullying Prevention Week and come up with the best recommendations, practical solutions and innovative ideas to prevent bullying in the school environment.
