Kateri Dorey, left, and Rhonda Knight, right, students at Lnu Sipuk Kina'mukuoum in Indian Brook, got to visit with Cyber at the second annual anti-bullying event held at RiverBreeze Farm's cornmaze on Wednesday.
Hosted at RiverBreeze Farm, the second annual anti-bullying event saw about 100 students gather for words on bullying, what to do when they see it and where they can turn when it happens.
For Kateri Dorey, 11, and Rhonda Knight, 10, from Indian Brook, the message was clear.
"We learned to try to stop bullying and what to do if you get bullied," said Rhonda.
"I'm going to tell my family and friends that if they see someone being bullied, to go and do this," she said as she gave Rhonda a big hug.
The event, which saw Pam Murchison, RCMP Const. Jane MacDonald, and Truro Police Service constables Todd Taylor and Jon Keddy speak, as well as Makayla Lynn perform, raises money for the Jenna Bowers-Bryanton Memorial Scholarship.
Jenna, Murchison's daughter, took her own life last year after being the victim of bullying.
