Rockingham SHS Education Support Centre joined schools across Australia taking action against bullying by participating in the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence last Friday.

This year the school invited Student Edge, headspace Rockingham, and City of Rockingham youth workers to the school to talk about how students can keep themselves safe when using digital platforms.

WA Disabled Sport Association also facilitated trust activities, including archery and remote car driving challenges to encourage team work and perseverance among students.

The day finished with a student and teacher volleyball challenge. The senior school students defeated the senior school staff, and the middle school staff defeated the middle school students.

Principal Diane Atkinson said she hoped the students learnt valuable lessons on the day and encouraged students to report bullying issues to the school immediately.
