15 Mar A SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY AT STAR OF THE SEA
RELATIONSHIPS ARE AT THE CORE OF ALL WE DO AT STAR OF THE SEA AND THE NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION AGAINST BULLYING GIVES US THE CHANCE TO CONTINUE TO TEACH OUR STUDENTS ABOUT HEALTHY AND RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS.
We believe that staying positive about the good things in our lives – family, friends, our abilities and interests –gives us something solid to direct us when we are struggling with difficult situations. We also believe that children need strategies for acting confidently in situations that make them feel unsafe. Through the teaching of the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety Curriculum Program students are taught knowledge and skills to recognise, react and report when they are unsafe.
At Star of the Sea it is our great privilege to partner with parents in the journey of raising their children and we encourage parents to create spaces where their children feel safe to talk. Children need to be listened to and reassured. Sometimes that is all they need. Sometimes they need you to seek out further support for them and the school is often a great place to start as is the Bullying No Way! website. As in past years, our School community will celebrate the National Day of Action with a day of fun activities to reinforce the messages we are teaching.
