Echuca College along with the State Primary Schools are implementing the “It’s My School Too’ program. This program aims to empower the ‘silent majority’ in reducing incidences of bullying and harassment, and boosting a culture of safety and tolerance where students feel free to participate in school life without being bullied or harassed.
This program has started with a group of students who are preparing a video which will be used in workshops with all students and staff next year. This video will provide students with the opportunity to voice how Echuca College can work together to take a stand against bullying. The video will include students discussing their ability to treat others respectfully and ways to respond in situations where bullying or harassment may arise. More information will be provided early next year, including an information session for parents and ongoing updates.
