Attendees at the NSW Anti-Bullying Strategy 2018 Conference will learn how to help prevent bullying and how to respond when it does occur. Topics covered will include:

  • cyberbullying
  • sexting
  • supporting vulnerable youth
  • the bystander influence
  • evidence-based behaviour interventions that work.

The conference is being held in Sydney on 29 and 30 October. Three regional workshops will also be held in:

  • Wagga Wagga on 31 October 2018
  • Dubbo on 31 October 2018
  • Ballina on 2 November 2018.

The conference is part of the NSW Government’s Anti-Bullying Strategy, which includes a range of new professional development initiatives for teachers, and the NSW anti-bullying website  for schools, parents, carers and students.

Wellbeing directors from education departments in each state and territory will attend the conference so strategies and solutions can be implemented Australia-wide.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said the conference and workshops were an opportunity for educators from the public, independent and Catholic school sectors to come together and share information and best-practice expertise on combatting one of the most challenging issues in schools today.

“This year we’ve also launched a review into the use of mobile phones in schools and we’re addressing the ever-evolving issue of cyberbullying,” Mr Stokes said.

“Bullying of any kind is unacceptable, no matter who you are or where you go to school.”
