Last February 11, 2019 at La Consolacion College, Pasig (LCCP), 400 students attended the Anti- Bullying Forum. LCCP had 2 distinguished speakers;
An award winning entrepreneur, Robert Laurel Yupangco who is also the grandson of our former President of the Philippines, Jose P. Laurel and the CEO of Zoomanity Group. Lastly is the newly graduate & Cum Laude from Polytechnic University of the Philippines who in-spite of being poor & bullied, still managed to proved that one can still make it to the top and ignore any challenges.
The Manila Times Business Writer, Entrepreneur and LCCP PTC President, Engr. Grace Bondad Nicolas moderated the event.
Cyber-bullying or any bullying done through the use of technology or any electronic means is also bullying punishable under the law.
According to LCCP Guidance Councilor, Letmi Dela China, “pursuant to the provisions of Section 7 of Republic Act No. 10627 otherwise known as the “Anti-Bullying Act of 2013” the Guidance Office would like to have an Institutional 3 Days Anti-Bullying Campaign as part of the Bullying Prevention Program of La Consolacion College Pasig. The program adapts three different approaches to bullying such as (1) awareness-communication, (2) early intervention and prevention; and (3) remediation-violation. We hope that through this campaign we will be able to impart the students on how to stop bullying and how to protect and save them from bullies.”
Philippines. The Republic Act 10627 or the Anti-Bullying Act of 2013 was signed into law by Former President Benigno Aquino III on September 6, 2013. The law requires all elementary and secondary schools in the country to adopt an anti-bullying policy.
