The #Up2Us Anti-Bullying Kit is a resource for Junior Cycle SPHE teachers and students. The aim of the Kit is to empower post-primary students to address bullying, in particular cyber bullying, in their local communities. The resource includes the #Up2Us Teachers’ Handbook which has ten lessons that cover the anti-bullying section of the new Junior Cycle SPHE course.
The lessons attempt to engage students on cyber bullying using active and engaging methodologies and updated, relevant information. Through discussion and small-group activities, this programme promotes positive actions and behaviours which should help students to create an anti-cyber bullying environment on a school-wide level and in the wider world.
