Last week, Year 6 students at Pacific Paradise Primary School welcomed School Based Police Officer Senior Constable Rob Ward to their school where an hour was spent delving into all matters associated with bullying.
The visit was the culmination of a week spent extensively investigating, role-playing and problem solving in class with their teacher, Mrs Wadeson.
“We used scenarios to find workable solutions to ensure that they will be able to identify situations that require the initiative to stand together and unite around the message that bullying and violence is not “OK”,” Mrs Wadeson said.
The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence is Australia’s key anti-bullying event for schools and Senior Constable Ward was very proactive in other schools too.
The day celebrates its eighth year and is a positive day of action bringing school communities together to help find working solutions that address bullying and violence.
