John Farrell is an internationally acclaimed Peace Educator, Author and Songwriter. His highly requested program presents interactive songs and stories that provide an opportunity for students to put themselves in each others shoes and consider the harmful effects of teasing and bullying.

Using songs and stories to present familiar situations students are asked to consider what they can do to counteract bullying and teasing in school, and away from school too. This positive approach correlates with topics and strategies in the most successful anti-bullying programs.

John Farrell draws from his own experiences as a child and adult and talks with students about times when he was the victim of bullying, and also occasions when he was the one whose actions hurt others.

Program includes selections from the following pieces, according to grade levels attending;
What Can We Do to Help Stop Bullying?
What Would You Do?
If I Wasn’t Me I Might Be You
It’s the Little Things That We Do
How Would You Feel?
