What's Happening

Bullying No Way Activities 2014

The NRL and Canberra Raiders Tackling Bullying program was presented to our year’s 2-6 students on the Junior Campus recently for Bullying No Way 2014. The presentation was conducted by Ashley Barnes, (Game Development Officer) and Patrick Mago (Under 20’s player and Junior Kangaroo representative). The students enjoyed the presentation and interacted wholeheartedly with our visitors. ‘Ash’ and ‘Paddy’ were very impressed with Wanniassa’s commitment to reducing bullying in our community and the level of understanding of the children.
The students dressed in orange to celebrate “Bullying…No Way!” and had a values lesson on bullying and cyberbullying to match up with our fortnightly value of ‘Resilience – Never giving up’ on telling someone about bullying.
