Anti-bullying program for primary schools: The money raised from this appeal would allow us to run our bullying education program in schools based on need, not whether families can afford it

iCrowdNewswire - May 28, 2015

Anti-bullying program for primary schools

Can you help eradicate bullying? $15 can provide a child with education on a range of strategies for dealing with bullying situations and help schools to implement strategies to break bullying cycles.

Our goal

To raise $150,000 to expand delivery of Interrelate’s Bullying Awareness Program to an additional 10,000 primary school students across Australia.

$15 can provide a child with education on a range of strategies for dealing with bullying situations and help schools to implement strategies to break the bullying cycle.

How are you planning on spending the money?

The money raised from this appeal would allow us to run our bullying education program in schools based on need, not whether families can afford it.

Schools can nominate themselves to be a recipient of the program by [email protected] Interrelate will get in touch with nominated schools to identify those most in need based on set criteria.

 

The problem

There is a bullying culture amongst young Australians but currently no universal approach to funding education in this area.

Evidence shows:
– Australia has been ranked No. 1 world-wide for bullying on social networks
– 1 in 5 young Australians aged 8-17 years experience cyber bullying each year
– Children who are bullied are up to 9 times more likely to have suicidal thoughts
– The effects of childhood bullying can last up to 40 years past the experience
