Mr. Holmes explained that children with low self-esteem are the ones who engage in bullying others, he therefore urged the students to deviate from such acts, by respecting themselves as well as their classmates.

He also encouraged the young ladies to refrain from retaliation and take charge of their lives by maintaining high self-esteem.

The Convent High School was the first school to create awareness and initiate policies to create an anti-bullying society.
