WITS Program

The WITS program was developed by the ROCK SOLID FOUNDATION and the Department of Psychology, University of Victoria. The program teaches students strategies for dealing with bullying and is aimed at Kindergarten thru Grade 3. School Liaison Officers visit these grades several times during the school year to reinforce the anti-bullying message.

It is a simple way of conveying to children practical  strategies for handling conflicts with peers. 

The WITS acronym stands for:

Walk away

Ignore

Talk (use words not fists)

Seek help
