His message around bullying is all about how each and every student can make a difference in their school Community. Anthony’s work combines the best of entertainment and education. From Kindergarten to Grade 8 our students were entirely engaged in his presentations.

BULLYING - 50 minutes

Our bullying presentations are upbeat and high impact! We use audience interaction, comedy, pop culture and “freestyle” raps to keep students engaged. We distinguish between bullying and conflict because we don’t want students thinking that every conflict is an episode of bullying.

We provide bystanders with practical strategies to tackle bullying effectively. We teach students to:

STAND UP to the bully when it is safe
REACH OUT to targets of bullying and isolated peers
TELL SOMEONE when another student is being hurt

We have found that the best way to communicate to students is to speak to them on their level. The ideal way to teach a primary student may be the most ineffective way to address an intermediate student! As such, we have a maximum age spread of 4 years in each presentation. For example, we can do Grades 1-4 in one presentation and Grades 5-8 in a second presentation. We cannot do Grades 1-8 in a single presentation (even for small schools) because the age spread is just too much. For K-8 schools, we have had great success in conducting two separate assemblies: Grades 1-4 and Grades 5-8. 


Since Anthony’s visit, we have been able to use his message when talking with individuals and small groups of students about their relationships with one another. They readily recall Anthony’s words and one of his most important pieces of advice - ‘if you’re doing nothing, you are part of the problem.’
