On the morning of Monday, February 4, Nelson Elementary got a visit from Harlem Globetrotter Dizzy Grant.
Grant was at the school to talk to the students about the Globetrotters new anti-bullying campaign. The ABCs of Bullying Prevention, targets 6-14 year-old kids in a lesson developed in coordination with the National Campaign to Stop Violence. It focusses on engaging students in a fun way with steps they can take to deal with bullying if and when they see it in their school.
School staff say Grant's dynamic and energetic talk roused a lot of interest among Nelson's students. But by far the biggest hit of the visit were the tricks that Grant passed on to a small group of lucky kids.
The Harlem Globetrotter's visit was sponsored by the Howard Johnson Vancouver Boutique Hotel.
