Police were called to a bullying incident in Thornhill last week, as parents, teachers and principals of two schools there dealt with a recent incident immediately.

Terrace RCMP reported that a 10-year-old boy was being bullied by a 10-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl at a Thornhill school May 15 and that police spoke with the principal who was dealing with the matter along with teachers and parents.

Officers followed up with the parent to ensure the matter was dealt with, said Terrace RCMP media relations officer Const. Angela Rabut May 16.

Police are rarely called to incidents of bullying in Terrace schools,” said Rabut.

The schools have taken a pro-active and zero tolerance approach to bullying and deal with it quickly.”

Usually when police are called, they act as peacekeepers and provide guidance, she added.

Later, she said, in response to Thornhill Elementary principal Bill Lenuik saying that police did not speak with him, that the investigating officer had spoken with the secretaries of the schools because both principals were resolving the issue that occurred at the bus stop.

This matter was dealt with by the principals,” said Rabut, adding she had since talked to the principals of Thornhill Elementary and Primary.
