Creating Safe Spaces
School culture is very important for the well-being of students. A positive school environment creates a safe, supportive, inviting, encouraging, and challenging atmosphere for students and staff. This allows students to focus on their academics and learning will flourish.
We must support students by catering to this positive environment - we cannot allow vaping or bullying to discourage students in what should be a safe place. Studies show that students that endure bullying in school are more likely to become depressed and feel disheartened. This effects learning and will effect students in the long term.
