Bystanders play a role in bullying
It's no secret that bullying goes on in schools.
One of the biggest ways to impact if a bully gets away with what they are doing, is if bystanders sit idly by or not.
"We know the power of having bystanders and our friends stand up to bullying, that it has an immediate and positive impact," said Patricia Prowse, superintendent of education with Saskatoon Public Schools.
That's why any students, teachers and even parents are encouraged to come forward if they know something is happening.
"We would have an investigation of the incident and involve the parents and the students that have come forward with that information," said Prowse.
Since technology is becoming more and more important in every day life, alot of bullies have taken to social media sites.
To help fight this problem, many schools have blocked access on their computers, but the majority of students have smartphones to access them instead.
"Because students have access to social media sites during the day and outside of school, it's important that we work together as a community," said Prowse.
"We need to talk to them about the responsibilities that they have when using those technologies, because they leave a digital footprint."
According to Prowse, from the moment students walk in the door they are taught how to develop healthy and respectful relationships with others.
