Bullying No Way

 

There is no place for bullying at Windaroo Valley State High School. Bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence are all interpersonal behaviours that can create or contribute to negative social environments. Sadly, research suggests that many young people who experience bullying may tell no one. If you believe your child is experiencing any form of bullying please contact the school.

Please refer cases of bullying to the school by using the Student bullying report form.   Once completed please email the report or return it to the administration office on the next school day.  We have put a number of resources at the bottom of this page to assist parents and students in the management of bullying. 

Take a Stand Together




The Take a Stand Together App was developed by all Australian education authorities, working together to create safe and supportive school environments free from bullying, harassment and violence.

Take a Stand Together provides students with tips and advice which they can apply to different bullying situations.

Students can:

•Watch interactive animations on bullying situations and choose different endings to see what happens next. They will learn from the different responses.

•Create their own avatar and choose a positive anti-bullying message so they can take a stand against bullying. Students have the option to post this to social networking sites or add the avatar to a friend in their phone’s contact list.

•Read bullying facts and advice in different types of bullying situations.

Young kids love to use their parents’ phones – install it on your phone and let them investigate at their own pace.

Providing your child with tools to respond to different bullying situations helps build their capacity to deal with bullying at school and online.

Students and parents can find further information or assistance for bullying at the following addresses:
