Each year, schools across Australia join together to mark the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence
. This annual day provides a focus for schools to say Bullying. No Way!
and to strengthen their everyday messages that bullying and violence at school are not okay at any time.
The National Day of Action occurs on the third Friday in March each year and is organised by all Australian education authorities through the Safe and Supportive School Communities (SSSC) Working Group.
Schools are encouraged to participate by organising local events and activities to mark the national day. The For schools section of the National Day of Action website has lots of information to help you get the most out of the day including suggestions for school events, class activities, promotional resources, lesson plans and more.
