Southern Telegraph - - NEWS -

Rock­ing­ham SHS Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­port Cen­tre joined schools across Aus­tralia tak­ing ac­tion against bul­ly­ing by par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Na­tional Day of Ac­tion against Bul­ly­ing and Vi­o­lence last Fri­day.

This year the school in­vited Stu­dent Edge, headspace Rock­ing­ham, and City of Rock­ing­ham youth work­ers to the school to talk about how stu­dents can keep them­selves safe when us­ing dig­i­tal plat­forms.

WA Dis­abled Sport As­so­ci­a­tion also fa­cil­i­tated trust ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing archery and re­mote car driv­ing chal­lenges to en­cour­age team work and per­se­ver­ance among stu­dents.

The day fin­ished with a stu­dent and teacher vol­ley­ball chal­lenge. The se­nior school stu­dents de­feated the se­nior school staff, and the mid­dle school staff de­feated the mid­dle school stu­dents.

Prin­ci­pal Diane Atkin­son said she hoped the stu­dents learnt valu­able lessons on the day and en­cour­aged stu­dents to re­port bul­ly­ing is­sues to the school im­me­di­ately.
