NEW: Central Falls Students Host Anti-Bullying Ribbon Ceremony

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

 

Central Falls High School students took a stand today in an anti-bullying demonstration.

This afternoon students of Central Falls High School  held an anti-bullying demonstration on the front steps of the school in a display of support for the community and the fight against bullying.

Earlier this morning the students attended an anti-bullying presentation, at which Central Falls Mayor James Diossa decreed that February would be Anti-Bullying Awareness Month. During their lunch periods, the students wrote messages to their bullies on colored ribbons. Over a hundred ribbons with messages written in different languages were then tied together and hung up on the front steps of the school at the end of the day.

The presentation was hosted by RememberMeRI , a month-long anti-bullying campaign run by five public relations students at Roger Williams University  in an effort to stop bullying in Rhode Island schools. The campaign aims to create awareness among students and community members as well as to propose ways to address and solve the issue. Theresa Agonia, one of the five students that runs the campaign, was excited to get the school's students involved. "A great way to express yourself is through words. It's important for students to have the courage to say something to their bullies or for someone that is getting bullied."
