Bullying. No Way! lessons and discussion starters
Bullying. No Way! has created a range of lessons and discussion starters especially for schools to use on and around the National Day of Action, or any time of the year.
Providing students with opportunities to talk about bullying is an important part of making a positive change. However, talking about bullying can also raise issues that schools may not have been aware of previously, or can sometimes lead to increased bullying for some students.
When conducting classroom discussions on bullying, school leaders should ensure all staff are aware of how to respond to reports of bullying and that, where needed, support and appropriate intervention is available to everyone involved.
The lessons and discussions starters are available for students in Years 3 to 12 to support student involvement in countering bullying.
- 2016 Talking about bullying classroom discussion starters for Years 3 to 12, support students to collaboratively discuss their ideas about bullying, and what they can do about it individually and as a school community.

Lessons and discussion starters will remain on the website for schools to use anytime throughout the year.
