Bully Stoppers

As part of the Bayside Bully Stoppers Network, student leadership teams from Brighton Beach, Hampton, Sandringham, Sandringham East and Beaumaris are spreading their bullying prevention knowledge by showing the graphic films that they made as part of

their Year 5 Bully Stoppers Community Project in 2015.  These teams now in year 6, are attending assemblies in each others’ schools to share common understandings and provoke further thinking and questioning, giving voice to students to be ‘upstanders’ and to make a stand and lend a hand. Yesterday Hampton Primary School presented their film to our Year 4, 5 and 6 classes. Their message that ‘Bullying Scars’, was made very clear. On Friday our team of Elwood, Riley and Zac will share the BBPS film at Beaumaris Primary School.  Please look for Grace and Scarlet’s media release in next week’s newsletter on this important project. Each term this year, members of the film teams will have a turn to present at another network school.
