Share your pledge against bullying and encourage others to effectively end bullying, harassment and humiliation.
Approximately one in four Year 4 to Year 9 Australian students reported being bullied in person or online every few weeks or more often which causes too much harassment for our little ones future of this country.
We all want to change that and have Australian schools to be safe, supportive and respectful. A great place for teaching and learning that promote student wellbeing.
“Show to the world you make the difference and join JT against bullying”
Then share your pledge against bullying with others.
What is bullying?
Making sure everyone in your school shares the same definition of bullying is essential. Sometimes things that are called bullying are not really bullying at all.
The national definition of bullying for Australian schools is the first place to look.
Including the definition of bullying in the relevant school policy helps to ensure shared understanding within the whole school community. The policy could also include
definitions of harassment, discrimination and violence.
Bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence are all interpersonal behaviours that can create or contribute to negative social situations and school environments.
A shared understanding of bullying is the starting point for effectively preventing and responding to bullying in your school.
Preventing bullying involves everyone talking together openly and respectfully.
Bullying can have a lasting impact on everyone involved, including those who witness it, so it is important to work together to create safe school communities for everyone.
