As part of our National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence on Friday, 16 March, we will be re-launching The PALM of PEACE. Dr Simon Petrie (author of Pathways to Peace) will address Year levels on Friday, speaking to students about what bullying is and how we can overcome it.Dr Petrie will discuss The Palm of Peace with students.
The Palm of Peace gives the power to students to be PEACE MAKERS. Dr Petrie will explain to students that if someone is upsetting them, bullying them, being mean to them, then…hold up your palm and say "PEACE". Students will be encouraged to let their fingers remind them of the Peace Code to turn things around.Posters of the The Palm of Peace are located around the school. Students will be able to use The Palm of Peace in the playground and in the classroom when confronted with difficult situations. It would be appreciated if you take a moment at home to discuss the power of The Palm of Peace when dealing with bullying or antisocial behaviour.
We will also have a visit from our Adopt-A-Cop, Senior Constable Dan Egan. Dan will be talking to our Year 5 and 6 students around Cyber Bullying and Cyber Safety.
If you have any concerns about your child and bullying, please ensure you discuss this with your child's class teacher in the first instance and with the Administration Team if required.
