The purpose of this project was to create and implement a curriculum and an informational pamphlet on the prevention of bullying at St. Philomena School. The plan was designed to empower students, parents, staff, and community members by defining bullying to give tips on how to prevent bullying, to provide statistics, and to give more resource support to students and parents as well as teachers. The review of literature and research showed that it was essential for all schools, whether public or private, to have information regarding bullying in place. This could be either an extensive bullying curriculum package or a pamphlet for teachers, parents, students, and community members. This project includes curriculum and an informational pamphlet on the prevention of bullying designed for St. Philomena School. Included in the pamphlet are definitions on the different types of bullying; ways for preventing bullying; websites for teachers, parents, and students that deal with issues of bullying; and statistics on this important topic. Included in the curriculum are lessons that will help students identify, define and acknowledge bullying behaviors. The bullying curriculum and pamphlet was created as a resource which students, parents, teachers, and community members can refer to in order to increase their knowledge of bullying.
