As part of the state government’s commitment to keeping children safe from bullying, the Department for Education will implement a range of measures to address all forms of bullying including cyber-bullying.
What are we doing?
The Department for Education is developing an overarching anti-bullying strategy to be released in 2019 that will strengthen anti-bullying responses for teachers, students and parents. The new approach to anti-bullying will provide increased support, training and resources to help us identify and address bullying, and create safe and inclusive environments for all children.
What’s happening now?
Attend the conference to hear from leading international and Australian researchers, who will be exploring community approaches to address bullying on Monday 5 November at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Attendees can nominate to be a part of a consultation workshop to be held on the following day.
The conference is open to educators and people working with children and young people from government, non-government, not for profit and community organisations and will cover topics such as:
- the global context of bullying
- supporting children at increased risk of bullying
- bullying and mental health
- social media and cyberbullying
- legal responses to bullying
- school and community responses to bullying
Find out more and stay up-to-date about the development of our anti-bullying responses and how you can get involved in this important community issue.
I encourage you to share this with your networks and to feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
