Community of Caring

The Community of Caring, based on the Olweus Anti-Bullying Program, was incorporated into the GMA curriculum many years ago to support our Mission to teach gospel values, rooted in Mercy, in a caring environment which fosters acceptance of self and one another. Ongoing education through activities and discussion, in particular class meetings, provides opportunities for students to realize and gain an emotional understanding of bullying, its destructive nature, and the personal responsibility involved for all. The interactions also foster the development of interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, not only in a structured environment, but during unstructured situations, such as playing at recess, socializing at lunch, riding the school bus, and communicating via technology.
