Chile: Students produce bullying awareness short

This is a phenomenon that is taking place in our country and the rest of the world. You can't know what another person is thinking, or how your jokes may affect them. Let's avoid the hindering of future talents due to the immaturity of some.

The short “Bullying” is rich in body language and expression, so even though it is in Spanish, the message is fully understandable regardless of your spoken language:

    Dear friends: I am part of a community anti-bullying project in southern Ontario, Canada. I’d like to get in touch with the Las Cumbres school in Chile who has produced the anti-bullying shorts. Do you have anymore information about them?
    Many thanks,
    Deborah Ellis
