Our school is registered to be part of the 2015 National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence, which will be held nationwide on Friday, 20 March.
The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (National Day of Action) is Australia’s key anti-bullying event for schools. It’s a day where school communities across Australia ‘take a stand together’ against bullying and violence.
Bowen State high School is dedicated to creating supportive school environments, free from bullying, harassment and violence. By working together we are sending a clear message to young people that bullying and violence, in or outside of school, are not okay at any time.
We have a number of programs and initiatives in place to counter bullying. These include … STOP, WALK and TALK
The National Day of Action is an initiative of all Australian education ministers and is coordinated by the Safe and Supportive School Communities (SSSC) Working Group, with representatives from all Australian educational authorities.
The SSSC is also responsible for the Bullying. No Way! website which offers practical resources and information to help schools, parents and students counter bullying, harassment and violence.
Also available on the site is the Take a Stand iPhone app, to keep tips and advice on dealing with bullying close at hand.
