November 22, 2012 - A special pre-screening of a bullying documentary took place today at St. Charles College on November 21, 2012 for one thousand students.

The movie Bully was featured at Cinefest in September. It is not being released in American theatres until May 30th, 2013.

Teachers involved in student council and the school leadership class contacted the film company about showcasing the film to the student body before its release to the public and they agreed.

The director of the film, Lee Hirsch was bullied as a child and follows the stories of two families dealing with the deaths of their children who were victims of bullying and took their own lives.

Students at St. Charles College also heard a first hand account from a senior student who was a victim of ethnic bullying in the past.

Justin Trac bravely shared his story of bullying and urged others to stand-up for what is right and just to make other people’s high school experiences that much better.

He said the powerful question that he used when he finally stood up this bully: “I know I am a small person, but why do you need to make me feel smaller?”

Each student in the audience also received a wristband with the slogan "delete" the drama.
