Bullying

BULLYING…… what could it possible mean? Children that bully use their advantages, size,age,strength and intelligence to feel power and aggression to control others.There are many different types of Bullying…

  • PHYSICAL: touching someone in a way they don’t want you to. Using violence against them
  • RELATIONAL: starting nasty rumours about someone or not letting the hang out with you and your friends
  • CYBER: using the Internet to send unwanted messages to the victim
  • VERBAL: taunting, insulting or laughing at someone

Bystanders are the ones who have witnessed an incident of bullying or harassment and haven’t  done anything about it. The Upstanders are the ones who support the victim by reporting what they saw to a parent, teacher or someone they trust. Don’t be the bystander be the up stander.

If you are being bullied, tell someone. Bullying is a huge issue,  no one deserves to feel scared, sad or even angry by anyone. Tell your parents or another trusted adult (teacher, coach, principle) what happened, as soon as possible. Your not alone and we can help.

Watching the bullying movie has changed my outlook on bullying, what students go through when they are bullied. The frustation that i feel watching the movie, no kid should ever feel pain like that. I really feel that all the kids from the movie are so strong to tell their story , it has made me want to make a change.

Being a good friend is willing to help a friend when in need. Somethings you can do to become a better friend are

  • listen to each others
  • don’t put each other down or hurt each other’s feelings
  • help each other solve problems
  • give each other compliments
  • respect each other
Remember…
  • invite someone over if they are sitting alone
  • talk to someone you don’t usually talk to
  • join a club- to meet new people and make more friends

Challenge #4

Challenge #4

For challenge #4 we have to pick a passion and insert a picture, my passion is ice hockey! Hockey is a team sport played on ice, The game is played between two teams with six players (five skaters and a goalie) on the ice. Five members of each team skate up and down the ice trying to take the puck and score a goal against the opposing team. There are different types of hockey, feild hockey, ball hockey and of course ice hockey. Anyone can play hockey if you just set set your mind to it, you don’t have to be a star athlete to play. Hockey is a great exercise and that is why I love it!! Hockey is a team sport and playing hockey I have learn teamwork, to work with others and work as a team.Shinny Hockey the Austrian Way

Choosing to give the gift of life

                Your probably wondering what the “Gift of Life” is, it means choosing to become an organ donor. Giving an organ is the most amazing gift you could give. In my opinion, I really hope that you will become one and make a difference.

Canada has some of the most highly skilled surgeons and respected transplant hospitals. In 2011, 2,169 lifesaving organs transplant were performed in Canadian hospitals. Ninety – eight percent of all kidney transplants, ninety percent of liver transplants and eighty-five percent of heart transplants are successful.

Unfortunately, the number of people in need for a transplant continues to rise faster than the number of donors. By donating an organ you could possibly save eight life’s or more and a family from sadness. Each day approximately seventy-seven people receive organ transplants, however about eighteen people die each day just waiting for a transplant.

Many people donate because other human’s organs or tissues no longer function. Most organ donation occur after the donors death, the organs that can be transplanted included the heart, liver, kidney, pancreases, intestines and lunges, as well as skin, bones, bone marrow and lots more. If one of your family member or anyone else was in need for a transplant, you can still donate while alive which include a kidney and also a part of your lungs, liver, intestine and pancreases.

There are no age limits on who can be an organ donor. There has been newborns and senior citizen that have donated. If you are younger than 18 you must have a parent or guardian consent. If you are interested in becoming a donor all you need to do is get in touch with your family doctor and they will tell you all you need to know, you can also visit this website at www.beadonor.ca . You will fill out one form and receive a card, it’s really that easy.

There are so many inspirational stories about organ donation and the one I am going to tell you about a girl named Diamond, she started dancing at the age of five years old. Diamond passion was to dance but unfortunately everything she danced she would experience feeling very tired and rundown. A year later, at the age of six doctors figured out that Diamond was born with a bad liver, after numerous tests they also found out that her kidney was in bad shape too. Diamond is now a healthy 16 year old girl because of a boy she has never met and never will. Diamond’s donor was an eleven year old boy named Jacob. Jacob was killed while riding this bike when returning home from school. Jacob donated his kidney and liver to Diamond. Three weeks before Jacob was hit, he told his dad he wanted to become someone’s hero. Well his wish has come true, Jacob is now Diamond’s hero for giving her the gift of life but also letting her dance again.

Now that you have the facts and heard a very inspirational story, you can see that becoming an organ donor can make a huge difference in not only just one person’s life but multiple lives. Hopefully you will help change someone’s life and become a hero.
