HWCDSB Anonymous Bullying Reporting Tool

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board (HWCDSB) holds sacred the view that each child is created in the image of God. Every person is to be treated with dignity and respect. Every student has the right to be safe and to feel respected in and around the school.

Guided by the teachings of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, the HWCDSB is committed to school environments where each member feels valued, respected, and has a sense of belonging with the goal of enabling all learners to realize the fullness of humanity.

The HWCDSB encourages all incidences of bullying to be reported to the school principal. Recognizing that some individuals may not feel comfortable with direct reporting, the HWCDSB has set up a safe and anonymous way to report bullying. Students, parents/guardians and Catholic school community members can use the HWCDSB Anonymous Bullying Reporting Tool.

What Parents Need to Know about Bullying

The school in collaboration with parents work towards creating a positive environment that promote children’s ability to create and maintain healthy relationships. By helping children develop the essential social skills to navigate peer conflicts and by minimizing opportunities for negative peer interactions, parents can help adjust the imbalance of power inherent in bullying relationships. Bullying can take on many different forms as children progress from early childhood to adolescence. During this time, your child could rotate between any of the three categories: the one being bullied, the one bullying and the one watching it happen. Regardless of what role your child plays, bullying has long-term negative consequences and must be challenged.
