Were you bullied at school? Or perhaps your child is a victim of bullying? Anyone you ask will have a story, maybe not of themselves, but of a friend or a friend of a friend who was, or is being, bullied. It continues to be a problem at our schools, stifling children’s ability to develop, excel and be happy. 70% of primary school and high school students experience bullying in school. 20-40% of bullying victims actually report being bullied.
The JAG BULLYPROOF initiative run through the JAG Foundation’s education and play programmes uses rugby to tackle the problem of bullying. More than 11,000 children in grades 4 – 7 from 25 schools experience the JAG Bully Proof programme each year, with 7,800 children having already gone through our complete programme since 2009.
In the attempt to bring awareness to the Bullying epidemic, JAGBullyProof has initiated a NATIONAL BULLYING AWARENESS DAY on 26 July 2013, which is tomorrow. The aim is to bring the focus of schools, the media and everyone else onto bullying a national effort to bring the effects of Bullying to the forefront of discussion. Companies, schools, and individuals can show their support against Bullying, by purchasing high quality purple Falke sports socks. Purple, being the colour of the bruise, is the colour we are associating with the fight against Bullying. The JAGBullyProof purple socks will be sold at R100 that gives the supporter a pair of socks, as well as donates a pair of purple socks to a child in one of our underprivileged JAGBullyProof schools. Socks may also be purchased on an individual basis for R50 per pair for larger corporate or sports team orders.
