This year we were again proud to be
participating in the National Day of Action Against Bullying!
Across the school our Positive Behaviour
for Learning (PBL) lesson highlighted bullying and taught students what to do
There are many resources there for
parents, the community and educators and we encourage you to visit the website
and talk to your children about bullying and about what we can all do about it.
What is bullying?
Bullying is a word that
is used with a lot of meanings. Making sure everyone in our school shares the
same definition of bullying is essential. Sometimes things that are called
bullying are not really bullying at all.
discrimination and violence are all interpersonal behaviours that can create or
contribute to negative social situations and school environments. Ensuring a
shared definition of bullying is important.
A shared understanding of bullying is the starting
point for effectively preventing and responding to bullying in our school.
involves everyone talking together openly and respectfully.
Bullying can have a lasting impact on everyone involved,
including those who witness it, so it is important to work together to create
safe school communities for everyone.
