National Day of Action

Schools ‘take a stand’ together against bullying and violence.

Each year in March, Western Australian schools are invited to get involved and register for the National Day of Action against bullying. The National Day of Action gives schools an opportunity to promote and acknowledge their initiatives and the strategies they use to counter bullying.

To celebrate the National Day of Action, the Department is hosting a free seminar in partnership with the Telethon Kids Institute, Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner and Legal Aid at the Statewide Services Centre in Padbury.  This seminar is an opportunity for school leaders, teachers and student support staff to find out more about promoting child safe schools through student wellbeing and online safety - see the flyer under Related Files to the right of this page for more details.

The National Day of Action and the Bullying. No Way! website are joint initiatives of all education jurisdictions. Schools across Australia are encouraged to ‘take a stand’ against bullying and violence and get involved. There are a range of resources to support your school’s involvement, including lesson plans focusing on reducing online bullying on the Bullying. No Way! website (see link below).
