Presents a positive vision of homes and schools
which the teachings and values of Indigenous cultures are all-important,
especially kindness and respect and COPA’s approach to positive change.
In this vision, bullying and all forms of abuse,
cruelty and discrimination have no place. It is a world where children, their
families and all people feel safe, accepted and included, where children can
learn freely and become who they choose to be. It is a vision of a world in
which people of all ages can be safe, strong and free - a place in which
everyone has a role to play and precious gifts to share and receive.
In conjunction with COPA, Nipissing University’s
Biidaaban Community Service-Learning Program has created age-based activities
that focus on anti-bullying utilizing COPA’s Circle of Caring resources.
Through this one-hour workshop we are striving
for kids to have an understanding about some of the effects of bullying. The
workshop includes having a community member, Fire Fighter or Police Officer,
reading one of COPA’s books followed by having a discussion about the themes of
bullying that occurred in the storybook.
The activities created included crafts that have
an anti-bullying theme that are geared towards primary aged students. The
crafts promote having a safe way to express feelings and promotes child parent
talk about feeling in a safe place. The other crafts promote friendship and how
friends to be kind with each other.

What COPA Offers
COPA has created a series of beautifully written
and illustrative storybooks for young children and parents for reading
together. Each book incorporates gentle messages about listening, kindness,
caring, compassion, courage and bullying prevention. They also describe
strategies used in difficult situations, which can be used to encourage
discussion with children.
These books are an easy and lovely way to
facilitate parent engagement. They also help parents, caregivers and educators
to affirm important messages about equity, inclusion and bullying prevention
that is being promoted in schools with the new curriculum.
These storybooks can be found as audiobook and
downloaded online or ordered for free through COPA’s eBoutique at http://copahabitat.ca/en
The Circle of Caring Logo was created by First
Nations, Metis and Inuit project partners to promote peace, caring and unity.
We give thanks to the Creator for Mother Earth, Father Sky, Grandmother Moon,
Grandfather Sun, and the stars— our ancestors— and their connection to all of
creation, the human family (individuals, family and community) in guiding this
Circle of Caring project.
A Circle of Caring will run in 14 community schools and organizations in the
upcoming academic year!
