Bullying NO WAY Day

15/03/2019
Friday 15 March is Bullying No Way! Day.  We invite our students and community to wear orange next Friday to support this National day of action.  Please note, it is NOT a fundraising day and students are not required to donate money to wear orange.
 
The Bullying No Way! Website has lots of information for parents and some excellent activities for kids, including an app.  Please take the time to have a look https://bullyingnoway.gov.au/forkids
 
Information for parents can also be found at the following link https://bullyingnoway.gov.au/Resources/FactSheets/Pages/For-parents-and-carers.aspx
 
It is important to have an understanding of what bullying is.  Bullying is an ongoing, repeated, targeted misuse of power by an individual or a group that causes physical and/or psychological harm.  
 
Bullying is NOT:
  • A single incident or conflict
  • Not liking someone or a single act of rejection
  • One-off incidents of meanness
  • One-off incidents of aggression or violence
 
If your child talks to you about bullying:
  1. Listen calmly and get the full story.  Most times, school staff are in the best position to get the full story.
  2. Reassure your child.
  3. Ask your child what they want to do about the problem.
  4. Visit www.bullyingnoway.gov.au to find some strategies.
  5. Contact the school.  Working together with the school is the best way to help your child resolve bullying issues.
  6. Check in regularly with your child.
 
We look forward to seeing our students in orange next Friday.  Suggestions include:  orange t-shirt, orange hair ties and ribbons, orange socks, orange wristband etc.
