Bullying-Free NZ Week school activity pack

March 2018
The Kia Kaha section of the School Portal has been updated with links to the 2018 Bullying-Free NZ school activity pack, which although developed for Bullying-Free NZ Week, can be used at any time of the year.  
The school activity pack includes the following:
  • Activities and initiatives that can be used with multiple age and class levels. These are designed to explore what bullying is, the types of bullying, and the feelings involved in a bullying incident; plus to help students think about who they can turn to for support. Schools can pick and choose the activities that will work best for them and their students. Each activity can be used as a stand-alone short task, or schools can combine several for a longer session.
  • A competition for schools, where students create, develop and promote bullying prevention messages through creative media, in line with this year’s theme Let’s Talk About It!  Closing date for competition entries is 1 June 2018 (following Bullying-Free NZ Week).
  • Information for schools on media releases, developing polices, professional development ideas, a ‘whole school approach’ framework, and a catalogue of what’s in the Bullying-Free NZ school toolkit.
