National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence 2013
This annual day provides a focus for schools who want to say Bullying. No Way! and to strengthen their everyday messages that bullying and violence at school are not okay at any time.
Christian College is committed to providing a safe and caring environment which fosters respect for others and does not tolerate harassment in any form. Our aim is to make this College one at which all students and all staff feel safe, valued, listened to and spiritually nurtured.
Highton campus Middle School students began the day in free dress with orange as the themed colour. In home rooms students were asked to strive for a good reputation such as Barnabas “one who encourages” found in the ‘Acts’ of the early Church. During the day all students attended a ‘No Bull’ presentation in the chapel provided by Planetshakers Student Services, in which they were engaged to reflect on their worth and the worth of others. At recess students gathered together in the South Courtyard to create a mass of bubbles with the provided bubble wands to ‘Take a Stand Together’.
Belmont campus Junior School students were also encouraged to wear orange for their free dress as a symbol of togetherness against bullying. At a special assembly, Grade 4 students presented role plays on bullying and provided helpful strategies in bullying situations.
A greater awareness has spread throughout our college community due to these activities and students have been empowered and equipped to ‘Take a Stand Together’ against bullying.
