ON March 13, more than 1,300 students from six schools in Surrey – Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Beaver Creek Elementary, Boundary Park Elementary, Cougar Creek Elementary, J.T. Brown Elementary, and Martha Jane Norris Elementary – participated in a flash mob style dance performance on the lower field at Tamanawis Secondary in Surrey, thanks to the initiative of Delta’s Sean Bindra for the fifth year.
The dance choreography was provided by skilled instructors from the South Asian Arts Society. “Bullying has no place in our world, so we’re all for supporting any initiative that brings the community together to stand in solidarity against bullying. Kudos to Sean for launching this initiative in 2014. SAA Society will continue to support the Anti-Bullying Flash Mob event in future years.”, says Gurpreet Sian who is the Executive Director of the South Asian Arts Society.
Sean says: “We need to celebrate our differences and support one another. Our differences are what make us strong, and therefore we need to encourage each other to be ourselves. All of us have faced some sort of bullying in our lives and it leaves you feeling low on the inside. We are all unique and beautiful, and this is what we need to embrace.”
The Anti-Bullying Flash Mob event is a self-funded community initiative.
