Bullying No Way Day, Friday 16 March
Bullying is an ongoing misuse of power in relationships through repeated verbal, physical and/or social behaviour that causes physical and/or psychological harm. It can involve an individual or a group misusing their power over one or more persons. Bullying can happen in person or online, and it can be obvious (overt) or hidden (covert).

Behaviours that do not constitute bullying include:

  • mutual arguments and disagreements (where there is no power imbalance)
  • not liking someone or a single act of social rejection
  • one-off acts of meanness or spite
  • isolated incidents of aggression, intimidation or violence.

Junior School students will receive a wrist band on 16 March and we will be presenting to the students about matters related to bullying in our Friday assembly.

Fundraising for the Telepresence Robot
To contribute to the purchase of a telepresence robot to support Madeline Luk, and other students who will be unable to attend school, please follow this link - chuffed.org/project/help-madeline-attend-school-virtually
We almost have the entire amount raised, which demonstrates the wonderful generosity of this school community.

Lunchtime Activities
We provide a wide range of activities for students to do during lunchtimes. These include choir, chess, Alive, Lego in the Library, garden Club and various games and activities through the lunch clubs program. Soon we will be introducing a Coding Club for the older students - information to come.

Mrs Jenni Liney, Junior School Counsellor, has provided some information about a free, online parenting course run by The University of Sydney. To learn about this program, please go to parentworks.org.au or contact Mrs Liney at school on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
