National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence

15/03/2019

​This Friday 15th March is the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. A massive name for a very important event in our community.

On this day, like all days, it is important to take a stand against bullying behaviours - no matter where they happen, or to whom they are directed.

It is important to be aware of what 'Bullying Behaviour' truly looks like. We acknowledge that...

Bullying is an ongoing and deliberate misuse of power in relationships through repeated verbal, physical and/or social behaviour that intends to cause physical, social and/or psychological harm.

Bullying can occur in numerous forms. It can involve an individual or a group misusing their power, or perceived power, over one or more persons who feel unable to stop it from happening.

Bullying can happen in person or online, via various digital platforms and devices and it can be obvious (overt) or hidden (covert). Bullying behaviour is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time (for example, through sharing of digital records).
 
Bullying of any form or for any reason can have immediate, medium and long-term effects on those involved, including bystanders. It is important to understand that single, isolated incidents and conflict or fights between equals, whether in person or online, are not defined as bullying.

On this Friday our Student Council will be selling wristbands that highlight the cause for 50c each. If your little ones would like to buy one, come to the P&C Hub either before school or at first break. The wristbands are in limited stock, so they will be sold first-come-first-served.
