SCCT Bullying Prevention Programs are funded by the TD Charitable Foundation.
SCCT’s Bullying Prevention aligns with and is clearly linked to the South Carolina Standards for Health and Safety Education, Safe and Drug Free Schools, and South Carolina Guidance Curriculum Standards.
Thanks to our efforts in securing grant funding, we were able to offer the following programs at a greatly discounted rate to Greenville County Public Schools.
Our Bullying Prevention Programming only runs during the Fall Season each year. Reservations for Fall 2018 will begin in April.
Elementary Bullying Prevention Touring Production
The show, The Boy Who Cried Bully, is a 50-minute production with a question and answer session immediately following the performance. Based on the famous Aesop’s Fable, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, it is a script that teaches as well as entertains. The target audience is 3rd grade, with an audience size of 100-250. This script lays the foundation for the continued Bullying Prevention efforts at the Middle School level and provides the elementary aged audience with a specific action plan should they be confronted by a bully. It also stresses the idea that bullying comes in many forms. SCCT will also provide a “Bully Box” for the school – a confidential place for students to leave notes for teachers/administrators about bullying they have seen or been affected by.
All SCCT secured grant funding for Greenville County Public Schools has been allotted for 2017. Reservations for next year will begin in April 2018
“The performance of The Boy Who Cried Bully at our school was exceptional. The enthusiasm of the actors, as well as the message they conveyed, was right on target. The play serves as a vital part in our character education and helping students make wise choices.” –Nelda Kay, School Counselor, Taylors Elementary
“I have had several teachers and multiple students contact me about bullying situations directly following the SCCT presentation, and it has led to discussion between classrooms and teachers about topics that need to be addressed further. Students expressed excitement after seeing The Boy Who Cried Bully but they also listened carefully to the message and are making reports and thinking about how they and those around them may be effected by bullying. It shows how theater is a great way to get the attention of students and give them important information.” – Bettina Elder, School Counselor, Duncan Chapel Elementary
“I loved the way the assembly addressed the topic in a kid-friendly and memorable way. It was a fun, humorous, and educational way to present the important information related to bullying prevention. ” – Traci Kinney, School Counselor, Bethel Elementary School
6th Grade Bullying Prevention Workshop
Bullying Prevention workshops are conducted by trained adult facilitators. Workshops are provided to individual classes in order to serve all sixth grade students in one school day. The workshop is thought provoking, engaging, educational and memorable for the students and includes dramatic role-play so students can their responses in a simulated bullying situation. The facilitators offer information, address the issues of bullying, and offer ways to change student’s thinking and behavior with regard to bullying in all of its forms.

“The program that is offered by SCCT delivers essential knowledge of what bullying is and creates a safe and fun environment for students to practice their proactive responses to bullying situations. Students were engaged in learning about bullying and how they can play a role in reducing it for themselves or others around them. This workshop not only enhances assertiveness skills but also contributes to student’s individual understanding of how they too can make their school a better place.” –
