Bully & Boo: Now available in Xhosa

January 26, 2015 | By

Xhosa Release

The Adventures of Bully & Boo, is now also available in Xhosa. Interactive comic strips, simulating various instances of bully behaviour, give Primary School learners and their teachers the opportunity to assess and choose between a variety of ways to behave under the circumstances. The modules have been designed to serve as a teaching aid in classrooms, with small children who are not able to read yet as well as an online module for computer literate children who can work through it themselves.

 

Stellenbosch brothers Timeon and Reuben Jansen van Rensburg, aim to create an awareness of the kinds of behaviour that constitute bullying. Emphasis is mostly on the victims and attempts to teach them how to handle being bullied, while little effort is made to address the bullies themselves. These stories will encourage children to evaluate their own behaviour and reconsider their actions in future.

 

They are also working on a High School version to be released shortly, with subsequent Primary- and High School versions to be released every term this year. The goal is to reach as many children as possible, before the next International Anti-Bullying Week in November 2015.
