Oatlands Primary School has taken a pro-active stance against bullying.
A Bully Busters Program has been implemented throughout our school for many years. The students are taught skills to assist them in dealing with bullying behaviour (physical, emotional or verbal).
The Junior School Council in collaboration with all students has developed an Oatlands Primary School - A Bully Free Environment brochure which details:
- What bullying is
- Types of bullying
- How people feel who are bullied
- What our school is doing about bullying
- How to develop skills to avoid being a target of bullying
- Learning strategies to assist when being targeted by a bully.
The development of this anti-bullying initiative has led to much discussion amongst students, parents and teachers and is proving a catalyst in reducing the incidents of bullying at our school.
The Prep students participate in the Bully Busters Program with their Grade 6 Buddy.
