Mepham High School's upperclassmen, along with Senator Charles J. Fuschillo Jr., R-Merrick, and Cablevision, recently encouraged freshman students to take a stand against cyberbullying.
The students took part in Cablevision's "Delete Cyberbullying," a year-long public service initiative that is sponsored by Cablevision's Power to Learn.
Through an audience survey, video, PowerPoint presentation and a storytelling skit, students talked about the damage that cyberbullying can cause, steps they can take to stop cyberbullying and the importance of looking out for one another.
Fuschillo said that the students did an excellent job of discussing an important issue.
“Cyberbullying affects far too many children. The best way students can learn about the harmful effects of cyberbullying and the importance of stopping it is to hear it from their peers," he said. "Mepham’s students did a great job of giving a very informative and powerful presentation which helped reinforce why students need to look out for one another and be proactive against cyberbullying. They should be very proud of themselves."
