The Manitoba government has leveraged more of its support behind an anti-bullying program meant to empower parents in keeping their children safe at school.

Safe Schools Manitoba will receive $116,000 for the 2013-14 school year, Education Minister Nancy Allan announced on Thursday.

“Parents are a key partner in our work to make schools safe, caring and accepting places for all students,” Allan said. “We are providing additional resources to give parents the tools they need to recognize the signs of bullying, to talk to their children about it and support them in working with students and educators to stop it.”

Safe Schools Manitoba offers workshops and resources for educators, students, parents and community members to build awareness and understanding of the problems and solutions that impact the safety of children and youth.

Parents will also have access to brochures, fact sheets and a website to help them deal with bullying.
