In the fall of 2011, Eastgate and Radley Elementary schools instituted a new bullying prevention program designed to reduce bullying throughout the community. The Olweus Bully Prevention Program originated in Norway and has over 40 years of research supporting its effectiveness. The goal is to change the culture of East Helena Public Schools, as well as that of the entire community.
Through a Distinguished School Award and a Montana Board of Crime Control Grant, Eastgate and Radley Elementary schools began the program by training school administrators and staff, as well as community members and parents.Thank you for your interest and support of this amazing program!
