National Day Against Bullying and Violencehttp://www.allsaints.qld.edu.au/Events/Pages/National-Day-Against-Bullying-and-Violence.aspxNational Day Against Bullying and Violence<p>You just have to turn on the news at night or listen to talkback radio to know that more and more people are now standing up to those in our communities who have carried on with unacceptable patterns of bullying, violence and intimidation. This is happening due to the support and encouragement of such strategies as Friday’s National Day Against Bullying and Violence. This day challenges all organisations including schools to do more for the prevention of bullying and violence. At All Saints we continue to be proactive in our approach to bullying. While not every situation can be prevented, a lot can be done in preventing bullying and if it occurs, dealing with it in a timely manner. Our Play Is The Way program sets out very clearly what the expectations are regarding social behaviour. The Life Raft “Treat Others as You Wish to be Treated” sets out this expectation for students to follow. Bullying occurs when a behaviour is repeated over and over again by an individual student or group of students. It can occur from an older student, but it is more of an issue with students in the same year level. </p><p>At All Saints we run a number of preventative programs to empower students, and to reduce the chance of bullying occurring. Some of these programs include:  </p><ul><li>Our Play Is The Way Program in all year levels  </li><li>Years 5 and 6 Social Skills programs run over six weeks in Term 1 </li><li>Years 5 and 6 Resilience program </li><li>Individual targeted programs in year levels as required </li></ul><p>When bullying is identified, a member of the Leadership Team becomes involved with the classroom teacher to investigate and ensure that the matter is dealt with. Parents are contacted as well. The aim of the investigation is to ensure the safety of the student being bullied and then to stop the bullying reoccurring. Consequences for the bully are used as well as a restorative conversation so that the bully understands the emotional effect that they are having on the other person. This is vital to ensure the behaviour of the bully changes. We also encourage any bystanders to speak up and not be passive about this matter. We employ a full time Guidance Counsellor Melissa Allison, to help support all parties through this process. I encourage all parents to speak with your child’s teacher if you have any concerns about bullying. Serious matters will then involve a member of the Leadership Team. While not all issues are issues of bullying, as a school we are committed to ensuring a safe environment for all students. This Friday, students will be involved in some classroom activities on bullying prevention. Our school has been registered with the National Day Against Bullying and Violence organisation.<br></p><p><img alt="bullying_no_way_2017long.png" src="/Events/SiteAssets/Pages/National-Day-Against-Bullying-and-Violence/bullying_no_way_2017long.png" style="margin:5px;width:638px;" />​</p>
