Thunder Bay's Catholic District School Board launched a new smartphone app Wednesday for use in their schools.
The app - called the TBCDSB Safe Schools- is designed to make it easier and more accessible to combat bullying and was designed in co-operation with Crimestoppers.
The new app's goal is to provide helpful insight on what to do if you are being bullied or if you see bullying happening.
It also has an anti-bullying pledge you can take, a links to the Kids Help Phone, and an anonymous way to contact Crime Stoppers if a serious form of bullying is taking place in these schools.
The app is available for Apple and Android devices through the App Store and Google Play respectively.
Find it by searching TBCDS Safe Schools.
