Bayside Says No to Bullying Challenge Launch

Last Wednesday our Year 5 Bully Stoppers Team went to Sandringham East Primary School, Our team along with teams from Sandringham, Hampton, Beaumaris and Sandringham East were addressed by Susan McLean who is an expert in cyber safety. After listening to her speak the group were then told about their 2018 Bully Stoppers Challenge. Some of their reflections are below:

Today we had the launch of our Bully Stoppers program. We went to Sandringham East Primary School where we worked this year’s task, which is creating a game about cyber bullying. We had a women, Susan McLean come in and teach us about cyber bullying and apps that you can get bullied in. Susan has been in the police force for 27 years and started talking to kids about cyber bullying in 1994. Ben M

Reflections: today was the first day of bully stoppers. We learnt so much about bullying and cyber bullying. We also learnt that all the

social media apps are 13+ so none of the bully stoppers or anyone under 13 should have these apps. Our project is to make a game about the topic cyber bullying and bullying. My team are making a digital game. We are using the app, app creator. Alice D

Today was the first day of the bully stoppers program. I think it’s a great challenge that we have to make a game to teach people that they should not be bullying in any way! The challenge is quite hard but we know we can do it and we are up for it. Also I learnt that all social media apps are thirteen plus. We gathered up with different schools to find out our challenge and we got into groups.
