This Friday, March 8, is the sixth annual acknowledgement of the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence.
For every student the message of a zero-tolerance policy is paramount.
Recently there have been a spate of high profile bullying cases in Australian schools including a teenager who was targeted for his sexuality. He was terrorised for two years and beaten with a skateboard while attending formal education.
No one should ever have to feel like this; feeling threatened emotionally or physically can have serious effects on one’s health and the wider community.
Students need to foster stronger relationships and a deep knowledge base on how to stand together to overthrow bullying.
