The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (NDA) is held annually on the third Friday of March. It is an opportunity for schools, childcare centres and the community to ‘take a stand together’ against bullying and violence.
Types of bullying:
Verbal – Name calling, teasing, putting someone down, threatening to cause someone harm.
Physical – Poking, hitting, punching, kicking, spitting, tripping or pushing someone, breaking someone’s things, pulling faces or making rude hand signals.
Social – Lying, spreading rumours, playing horrible jokes, leaving someone out on purpose, embarrassing someone in public.
Cyberbullying – Using technology to hurt someone else by sending hurtful messages, pictures or comments.
Please encourage kids to speak to a trusted adult if they are bullied or see others being bullied.
If you or someone you know need to talk to someone, you can call the college on 4081 7600 or the Kids Helpline on 1800 551 800.
