HWCDSB Anonymous Bullying Reporting Tool

The HWCDSB encourages all incidences of bullying to be reported to the school principal. Recognizing that some individuals may not feel comfortable with direct reporting, the HWCDSB has set up a safe and anonymous way to report bullying. Students, parents/guardians and Catholic school community members can use the HWCDSB Anonymous Bullying Reporting Tool.
