Get organised and start the conversation
The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (NDA) is an important day to mark Australian school communities standing together against bullying and violence. Get your school set for Friday 15 March 2019.
For the 2019 NDA school communities are called to share their commitment to say Bullying. No Way! and put their anti-bullying programs in the spotlight. Start thinking about ways to involve students and your communities.
Early planning is the key to a successful NDA in your school, so organise your NDA events now. The Bullying. No Way! website equips schools with a range of promotional materials, activity ideas and resources to help ensure a fantastic day of positive action.
If you're an official NDA school the 2019 NDA coordinator toolkit will be released soon to unpack all the ways to get your school involved.
Get ready for the NDA and make the day your own. Here's a handy checklist to download (DOCX 1.1MB)
The Bullying. No Way! message will echo across the nation on Friday 15 March with your involvement but this message is important every day – so start the conversation now. To get the whole school community talking we offer lots of ideas to help you run school events, class activities and lessons plans.
Share the Bullying. No Way! website with parents and carers so they can read about what bullying is and what sorts of strategies work to deal with it.
Send information to families using the NDA letterhead to let them know what your school has planned.
Share your Bullying. No Way! activities
We want to highlight the wonderful work happening in schools across the nation – even before your NDA!
Start capturing the great moments leading up to the NDA and share them with us and the community. Build your own school messages about the importance of working together to say Bullying. No Way!
Why not invite the local newspaper or media outlet to attend your school community events? Share the story on your website and social channels as well. #BullyingNoWay #TakeaStandTogether #NDA2019.
To send us your photos – simply upload images via the Bullying. No Way! photo gallery. We can share the wonderful work happening at your school.
Follow the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence Facebook page and share important messages to drive anticipation for your NDA events.
