A really important message

Our Year 5 & 6 students received a special visit from our school Adopt-a-Cops, Officer Beau and Officer Brenda. They spoke to our Year 5&6 students about the seriousness of bullying and violence. Students were surprised to learn that, from the age of 10 years children can be charged with assault should they become violent. Another fact that had students raise their eyebrows was that nothing is EVER deleted from social media, EVERYTHING is stored on the cloud and police can retrieve deleted messages, videos or photos. Students were urged to report all acts of bullying whether they are the victim, witness or even perpetrator.  The absurd mentality of "You snitch, you get stitched!" only serves to empower the bully. We need to send a very clear message to our children - violence is never ok.

This chat was a lead in to our coming free dress day where we wear orange and say, "No Way!" to bullying. This is part of the National Day of Action.

As a side note: One of the Year 2 students said to their teacher this afternoon, 'Look there's a cop nurse.' When the teacher questioned further, the little girl said, 'Well he's our Doctor Cop so she must be a Nurse Cop!'
