The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (NDA) supports parents, students and their school communities to find practical and lasting solutions to bullying and violence.

This year the National Day of Action is on Friday 18 August. The theme is ‘Growing Connections’. Due to the busyness of this week with swimming and camp, we have postponed our day of action at Woodend.

Whether you’re a parent, teacher, student or member of the broader community, everyone has a role to play in preventing bullying and violence.

How you can discuss bullying with your child

Research shows that strong connections and social skills help to prevent bullying and violence. It also encourages students to seek help if they need it. We encourage you to consider ways you can talk to young people in your life about bullying and violence prevention.
