National Day of Action Against Violence

Posted on 19 Mar 2019

National Day of Action Against Violence

At Neville Bonner Primary School, we take pride in our community’s focus on Kindness and Respectful Relationships, and the work our families, children and staff all do to ensure a safe and supportive learning environment. Friday March 15 is the National Day of Action Against Violence, an initiative that aims to address ways we can support our community in continuing to build our range of skills and strategies for safe and respectful interactions.

Over the next few weeks, the children at Neville Bonner will be involved in conversations and activities that explore this thinking. Mindfulness, and peer support will be included in this, and we invite families to continue these conversations at home using the resources the children will bring with them. We also hope you can join us at some of the exciting community initiatives that will be happening at school.

We look forward to making a stand with our community and affirming our commitment to integrity, mindfulness, kindness, and Respectful Relationships.
