Annual Anti-Bullying Campaign (Held September to October)
Bullying is still a part of life children in South Africa. Students who are bullied are more likely to develop depression, which can lead to suicide. Long-term psychological ramifications are experienced by both the victim and the bully. Psychological consequences include a lack of concentration at school, poor attentiveness, and a lack of sleep, to name a few. Each year, more than 3.2 million kids in South Africa are bullied, and 67 percent of bully victims do not seek help from a teacher because they do not believe it will help them. One of the most significant barriers to resolving the bullying problem is a lack of knowledge and understanding of the issue among teachers and the school management teams.
Every year, the MANCOSA School of Education presents a one-of-a-kind anti-bullying campaign that takes on a STEAM approach to understanding bullying from several perspectives, such as science, technology, leadership, culture, and so on. As a result, the participants get a better awareness of bullying and how to handle it.
