The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence is held annually on the third Friday of March. It is an opportunity for the whole school community to 'take a stand together' against bullying and violence.

The day is an initiative of all Australian education authorities and is managed by the Safe and Supportive School Communities Working Group.

The first National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence was held on 18 March 2011 and continues to grow every year.

Highlights from previous years 

The eighth National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence was held on Friday 16 March 2018. 

The response from schools and communities was fantastic, with more than 2 million students from over 4575 schools uniting to take a stand together against bullying and violence. 

School communities showed how they take a stand against bullying and violence by organising pledge walls, taking aerial shots of the Bullying. No Way! message, school assemblies, lesson plans and class discussions, marches and banners, lots of colour and excitement and, most importantly, involving everyone in discussions about creating safe and supportive schools.

Schools shared their BIG IDEAS for a world free from bullying.  Read some of the inspiring and positive messages on the Imagine wall of messages.

 Each year, schools can provide feedback through the NDA survey. In 2018:

South Headland Primary School 97% of schools were satisfied with the NDA in engaging the school community and promoting their school's anti-bullying messages

97% of schools report the NDA important in reducing bullying in their school

94% of schools said it was important to involve the whole school community in the NDA.
