What can be done to raise awareness?

According to a Scottish anti-bullying pack ('Bullyproofing Our School') there are a number of ways in which a school can raise awareness of the bullying issue. These include: setting up a special task force; raising the issue at assemblies; organising parent groups; having poster campaigns, carrying out surveys to find out what's happening in the school; inviting older children to talk to younger ones and covering the issue in the school magazine.
