Students donned bracelets with the words Emanuel Says No to Bullying stamped on the side, wearing the same slogan on t-shirts.

Years 7 and 8 students took part in the Human Sound Project to collaboratively create songs with an anti-bullying theme which will be made into an anti-bullying-themed music video documenting the progression of the development of the songs and their important themes. The films will be shared with parents and other students, helping to spread the messages and convictions of the students.

Anne Hastings, Principal, who wears her Emanuel Says No to Bullying t-shirt every year with pride commented: “This is an especially important day for us all to remind us that it is our obligation to lead by example and educate our community that bullying will never be tolerated. I am proud of our students’ enthusiasm for participating in the day’s activities and for their creativity and conviction in delivering their anti-bullying messages.”

Year 11 student, Charlie Wrublewski, reported: “National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence is a day to deliver powerful messages that bullying and violence are never okay. The Day encourages all students to stand together against violence and bullying in classrooms, in the playground as well as out of school.”
