Schools across the state can now showcase their work to address student bullying as part of the NSW Anti-Bullying Strategy.

The #CareRespectSupport showcase will provide a new home for creative resources developed by students, with schools encouraged to submit paintings, drawings, photos, films, music, dance, poetry and short stories.

Anti-bullying posters submitted by attendees of the 2018 NSW Anti-bullying Strategy conference and regional workshops will form the first exhibition in the online gallery.

The posters were created by students and staff at schools across the state to highlight programs underway in their classrooms to address bullying.

Schools are encouraged to submit content as the showcase will be a growing resource to share best practice approaches to create safe and supportive learning environments.

The launch of the #Care.Respect.Support showcase is among statewide preparations for the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence on Friday 15 March.

A record number of NSW schools will take part in the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence, with more than 1,300 schools already registered, representing more than 575,000 students.

The theme for 2019, ‘Bullying. No Way! Take action every day’ encourages school communities to take a collaborative response to strengthen positive behaviour.

Join us on Thursday 14 March when we screen our interview with the Office of the eSafety Commissioner via Facebook.

You can submit interview questions by emailing antibullying@det.nsw.edu.au.
