Stand up against bullying
BULLYING: No Way!
That's the message of today, the National Day of Action Against Bullying 2013.
Over 1400 schools across Australia have registered to participate in the day, with local schools such as Wyrallah Public School getting involved.
This annual day, organized by Australian education authorities through the Safe and Supportive School Communities Project, provides a focus for schools who want to say Bullying. No Way! and to strengthen their everyday messages that bullying and violence at school are not okay at any time.
A headspace survey has revealed today, on the NDAAB, that only one in seven parents are confident they would know the signs that their child is bullying others.
CEO of headspace, Chris Tanti, said bullying behaviour can be a red flag that your child might be going through a tough time and it's important to spot the warning signs.
