The Bayport-Blue Point High School recently celebrated Peer Education Program Day, as members of the school organization visited various English and social studies classes throughout the building to share a lesson focusing on the power of connection and healthy communication.

While visiting the classrooms, the students spoke about forging friendships and promoted antibullying techniques. Additionally, they shared tactics on how each of their classmates could learn to be an “upstander,” the person who assists another, as opposed to just being a bystander. 

Before concluding their lesson, students took part in an activity with assistance from John Martin, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services senior public health educator. During the initiative, participants formed a circle and offered a compliment to the person to their right.
