ON February 27, 2018, more than 1,000 students from six schools in Delta – Chalmers Elementary, Annieville Elementary, Jarvis Traditional Elementary, McCloskey Elementary, Gibson Elementary and Richardson Elementary – participated in a flash mob style dance on Tuesday on the field at the North Delta Secondary School to stand up against bullying and spread awareness about it – with the help of the B.C. Lions’ running back Tyler Davis and team mascot Leo the Lion.
For the fourth year in a row, community member Sean Bindra organized the event that was choreographed by the Shiamak Vancouver Dance Team’s Rohan D’Silva.
A second anti-bullying flash mob will be held on March 6 in partnership with the Surrey School District. The participating schools will be Tamanawis Secondary and Beaver Creek Elementary. This will be taking place on the field at Beaver Creek Elementary.
