The HYI and Hawkesbury City Council is pleased to announce the launch of an Anti-Bullying Toolkit.
In 2015, the Hawkesbury City Council conducted the Hawkesbury Youth Summit. This was an opportunity to undertake research into the central issues for young people in the Hawkesbury. Young people were consulted and Bullying and Cyber-bulling were identified as significant issues.
The Anti-Bullying Toolkit was compiled by the Youth Participation Officer at The Hawkesbury City Council with support from The Hawkesbury Youth Interagency and The Schools Partnership Group. It includes a variety of resources to schools to plan, promote, teach and share anti-bullying messages and to help tackle Bullying and Cyber-Bullying schools. Each Hawkesbury High School will be given an Anti-Bullying Toolkit and invited to use it to promote and celebrate the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence – March 18, & Harmony Day – March 21, and to use throughout the year as time permits. The Toolkit includes: anti-bullying posters; art-work; promotional material; investigative lesson plans; creative activities; research; information; and more. The resources cover all age groups from K-12. The Anti-Bullying Toolkit includes resources from the following organisations: Anti-Bullying Alliance resources: www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk
