Respect For All Week

AYA Academy, the Bronx High School Long-Term Suspension Center


School pyschologist, Caryn Huss lead students at AYA Academy, the Bronx High School Long-Term Suspension Center in a discussion about diversity and bullying with the help of the film, Bullied: A Student, a School and a Case that Made History

Afterwards, students created a Zero Tolerance for Bullying Wall citing statistics with space for individuals to speak out anonymously. Each member of the school community was given a bullying brick to add his/her bullying experience to the wall. Bricks were discreetly collected in an envelope and then posted on the wall as a reminder of how we should behave towards one another.

The photo above is the Zero Tolerance for Bullying Wall.

This story is part of a series to promote the ongoing school-based programs and activities through the Respect For All initiative.
