Today is National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence

Today, more than 890,000 students from over 1950 schools are joining together in their school communities to take part in the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence.

Students, teachers and parents are sending clear and powerful messages that bullying and violence, inside or outside school, is never okay.

Find more information about the day at or follow the campaign on Facebook.

Resources for teachers

New Stand Together lesson plans are available for teachers to download to use in the classroom today and any time throughout the year. They include an activity overview, detailed lesson plans, handouts and resources needed to conduct the lessons, as well as information about opportunities for ongoing learning.

Also available are National Day of Action resources that can be used to help plan school events, talk with students, promote school's anti-bullying work in communities and involve parents and the wider school community.
