Free Movie Night at the GEM Theatre

Last night 150 people came out to watch the movie “Bully” at the GEM Theatre in Keswick. This was a free event organized by the GEM Theatre, Jericho, York Regional Police and Martina; a mother from Fairwood Public School, whose son has been bullied for four years. A counselor from Family Services was also on hand for the discussion after the movie.

Susan Gorman, Managing Director of Jericho, spoke about the responsibility parents, guardians and grandparents have to keep fighting for a bully free environment for our children. Let’s keep the dialogue open and educate ourselves about how we can help to prevent and eliminate bullying.
