Cool at School: Anti-Bullying Efforts at Coral Academy

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Coral Academy of Science is taking unique steps to fight bullying.

This week, students held an assembly that featured a presentation that illustrated the problems of bullying.

Senior Aloha Lonetti created the presentation.

"Suicide rates among ages ten to fourteen have grown fifty percent. We have one student who has a medical condition to sweat a lot, and she's been bullied," she said. "I feel like if we use normal people that you see everyday, it would help shed light on the harmfulness of bullying."

The students also produced a video to drive home the dangers of bullying. The video features real life stories of bullying victims.

Additionally, students made pink t-shirts that show arrows to a heart with the words "This is what bullies do."

Every student used a "Hello my name is..." sticker to turn around being called something mean into something positive.

"The ‘Hello my name is…' stickers, you write something positive about yourself. You still have this positive attribute to yourself," said sophomore Stephanie Rosauri.

She gave examples of names being used such as "Hello, my name is Awesome" or "Hello, my name is Strong".
