National Day of Action Against Bullying

Last Friday was the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence. Schools across Australia undertook a variety of initiatives presented in their own context that emphasises that bullying and violence has no place in Australia. The day of action did not focus on a specific area or just on what we expect in our school but rather that whether it is inside the school gates, outside in the community, online or in person, we stand together to say any form of behaviour that is not respectful is unacceptable.
.
Our school focused on this day with all staff and students involved in one way or another and blended the messages into our commitment to safe and respectful behaviours through our positive behaviour for learning strategy. We do enjoy a calm, safe and respectful school and while young people do at times make wrong choices, we stand together as students, staff and families to reinforce appropriate behaviours and put a stop to anything that does not support a safe and respectful school or community.
 .
Our Student Leadership Assembly were the voice behind the program of activities that saw the immersion of this stand and bullying and violence through posters, assemblies and lessons within the curriculum. Our staff were led through professional learning and reviewed a consistent message through lessons presented to years 7 to 10 that allowed all students to discuss respectful relationships with explicit focus on ensuring that socially responsible behaviours continue to characterise who they are as young people and members of our school community.
 .
Thank you to Mr Amerikanos and Mrs Polianitis for their leadership within the school to support staff and students with this important initiative.
