At PSPS we take the health, safety and well being of our students and staff extremely seriously. Bullying in any shape or form is unacceptable.
In 2019, we will again join in the National Day of Action against Violence and Bullying. This will see Pakenham Springs take part in activities and discussions relating to issues around bullying and violence.
All students will receive a Bullying, No Way! wristband early in the week and will be encouraged to wear this all week to show that they are against bullying and violence. We will be sharing information around defining bullying, parent tips on how to deal with situations where you think your child may be getting bullied, or conversely, where you think your child may be participating in bully-like behaviour. Students will be given tips on how to identify and take action against bullying and also on how to stand up and help if they witness someone else being bullied.
The www.bullyingnoway.gov.au website is a fabulous source of information for parents around bullying, also including links to sites such as Beyond Blue and Kids Help Line for support if required.
