We presented ‘Stand Up Against Bullying’ assemblies at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Public School in Markham Ontario (York Region District School Board) and received this letter following our visit. (Note: the letter is written to the Principal and Vice Principal).

 Chères Mme Finn et Mme Palmer,               

                Merci beaucoup d’avoir organisé l’assemblée formidable de taxage.  Le “D.J.” nous a montré d’excellentes stratégies pour arrêter le taxage.  C’était amusant d’entendre et de chanter les chansons rhythmiques!  Avec ce qu’on a appris on a écrit une lettre à une amie qui avait des problèmes de taxage.  On a créé des posters contre le taxage.  On va aussi faire du drame.               

                Merci beaucoup pour ce spectacle exceptionnel!

 Dear Ms. Finn and Ms. Palmer,       

                Thank you very much for organizing the great assembly of bullying. The “DJ” has shown excellent strategies to stop bullying. It was fun to hear and sing rhythmic songs! With what we learned we wrote a letter to a friend who had problems with bullying. We created posters against bullying. We will also do drama.

                Thank you for this exceptional show!
