New partnership to tackle bullying

13 May 2019

Students from a number of government high schools are taking an in-depth look into bullying, as well as barriers to school attendance, to explore from a ground level what drives these issues and what can be done to address them.

The project is being undertaken by the Youth Affairs Council of South Australia (YACSA), in partnership with and being supported by the Department for Education, and will support students in developing and running student centred projects to reduce bullying and non-attendance in our schools.

Underdale and Nuriootpa High Schools will focus on bullying while schools within the Northern Adelaide Secondary Schools Alliance will focus on attendance.
Projects will be determined by the students and based on surveys and conversations with their peers, staff and parents.
