FREE showing of “Bully”, Savannah

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

BULLY movie Savannah showtimes 2019

On Tues. Feb. 12 @ 6PM, Georgia Southern University College of Education (COE) will host a FREE screening of “Bully,” a film documenting the effects of bullying on school-aged students and their families. The screening, which is free and open to the public, will begin @ 6PM in University Hall, room 156 located on the Armstrong Campus.

The documentary, filmed over the course of a single school year, follows five students and their families as they cope in different ways with cruelty from classmates while trying to fit in. Transcending geographic, racial, ethnic and economic borders, the film examines the growing issue of bullying in schools today and how students, parents, teachers and administrators are facing the problem.

The film sparked an ongoing effort called “The Bully Project,” which is a global movement to stop bullying and transform children’s lives by changing the culture of bullying into one of empathy and action. The movement website, www.thebullyproject.com, includes tools and resources on bullying for educators, students, parents and advocates.

Following the screening, the College will host a question and answer session with local professionals in the fields of social work, juvenile justice, counseling and bully prevention in schools.

This screening is the first in a series that will take place on the Armstrong Campus during the spring 2019 semester. Additional screenings include: “The Cartel” on March 5; “The School in the Cloud” on March 27; and “Elementary Genocide” on April 16.

Junior Golf Authority Savannah kids golf lessons

ASWING Junior Golf Academy Spring Semester Clinics
Beginning Sat. Feb. 2 2019.
The ASWING Junior Golf Academy begins its 12-week semester of clinics for girls and boys ages 5 years old to high school seniors. Certified curriculum & staff provide a FUN & process-driven plan to coach your child to play better golf no matter their ability, as well as cultivating the character development that golf provides.

These coaches are not trying to help create good golfers. They’re trying to create AMAZING golfers. They believe that should be the goal of every junior golf program in the country. However, the way they will go about creating those amazing golfers is vastly different from what is available in most junior golf programs. The focus is on the needs & learning styles of the juniors. Kids learn by playing and by encouragement, which they provide with our “golf playground” of stations and activities during every clinic. The kids love the excitement…some days even a parent can play too! The children who go through ASWING will build a love for golf and physical activity.

Be sure to take note of the kids’ faces as they go through the program. Watch the smiles. Watch the laughter. Watch the determination. Watch how their bodies move. Because of the varying physical nature of this program and its cross-training, the athletes who play other sports will also see increased skill levels in those sports.

To learn more about Savannah’s Junior Golf Authority, visit www.A-Swing.com or call Coach Paul at 912-704-8902 while slots are available.

__________________________________________________________

FREE Junior Golf Clinic in Savannah
