FREE ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS 

CAN YOU HELP? 

RSTA has received a request for volunteer translators from Sean Fallon,  RSTA  member and former RSTA National Secretary. Sean is the co-founder of the voluntary Anti-Bullying Campaign for schools.

The Anti-Bullying Campaign programme has been made available free of charge through the campaign website and has been implemented in primary and post-primary schools all over Ireland. The programme has also been offered "as Gaeilge" with translation of the resources provided by C.O.G.G. which is funded by the DES in order to give equal access to pupils in all-Irish schools.

Sean writes ". . .Because bullying is a universal problem in schools and because our programme works so well I am hoping  to make it available in other European languages beginning with French, German and Spanish . . . to do this I need to enlist volunteer translators who would translate even just a few pages from our programme. . . It occcurs to me that retired teachers of French, German, Spanish or other European languages may now have the time and the capability to translate a few pages from our website programme on a voluntary basis."

Can you help with this very worthwhile project? Take a look at the website at www.antibullyingcampaign.ie  to see the resources offered to schools free of charge.

If you would like to contribute to this very worthwhile programme by volunteering to translate some pages please contact Sean by email at: antibullyingcampaignforschools@gmail.com
