Letter to the Editor

Friday 15 March marks the annual National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence – the ninth day that schools across Australia will be spreading this important message.
 
It's a positive message that we can support as a community to stamp out bullying in our schools.
 
As a father of three school-aged kids, my wife and I understand the challenges that our kids face on a daily basis.  
 
Sadly the statistics speak for themselves and show why it is important to re-enforce positive messages and support these campaigns in our local schools.
 
Over one in four Year 4 to Year 9 Australian students (27%) reported being bullied every few weeks or more often (considered to be frequent) in a recent national study.
 
With the increasing use of technology, 84% of students who were bullied online were also bullied in person.
 
Teasing was the most prevalent of all bullying behaviours experienced by students, followed by having hurtful lies told about them.
 
One in five young people under 18 reported experiencing online bullying in any one year.
 
It's clear that more needs to be done to protect our kids at school.
 
On Friday 15 March we say – Bullying. No Way! Take action every day.
