Bully Zero Empowers Students

This week, the Bully Zero team visited the Years 5 and 6 students for an informative incursion focused on the significance of empowerment and creating a more inclusive and compassionate society. Year 5 students participated in the ‘Step Up’ program, whilst the Year 6 students took part in the ‘Thrive’ program. 

Bully Zero seek to instil the knowledge and skills required to effect positive change in our society through empowering and educating students about fostering a bully-free environment, with a strong emphasis on education, advocacy, and support to uphold its mission and values.

Empowering Through Education 

The initiative places a particular focus on equipping our students with the essential tools for effective interpersonal interactions, resilience in the face of challenges, and the ability to make informed decisions. Through a structured curriculum, it provides them with the knowledge and understanding required to tackle bullying head-on.

Advocating for Positive Change

In addition, the program guides our students in advocating for a bully-free environment. They learn about the importance of standing up against bullying and the role they can play in promoting empathy, inclusivity, and kindness within their peer groups. This advocacy is an integral part of the program, helping students become ambassadors for positive change.

Support and Resources

To ensure our students are well-equipped to face the challenges associated with bullying, Bully Zero assists them in identifying sources of assistance and support. Furthermore, the program shares the valuable strategies, tips, and resources that are essential for facilitating positive change, both within our school and the wider community.

Step Up

The Year 5 students actively engaged in the ‘Step Up’ program, embarking on a transformative journey of personal growth and development. Throughout the program, they focused on their communication skills, different personality types, emphasising the importance of effective interaction skills and self awareness. Additionally, they explored the significance of resilience and acquired a diverse array of strategies for overcoming a range of obstacles. The Year 5 students also engaged in personality assessment activities, facilitating an exploration of their individual personality traits and characteristics. The program also offered valuable guidance on making well-informed choices while equipping students with a variety of strategies, tips, and tools to effectively navigate the challenges they might encounter. The students also gained a deeper understanding of the resources available to them and the role of help and support in their journey towards personal wellbeing.


The Year 6 students actively participated in the transformative ‘Thrive’ program, providing them with a comprehensive understanding of resilience and vital life skills. Throughout the session, they engaged in an in-depth exploration of the fundamental concepts of resilience, equipping them not only with an understanding of its essence but also the practical know-how to apply it effectively in real-life scenarios. The students gained valuable insights into emotional regulation and stress management, learning how to harness their inner strength through the use of breathing exercises. The ‘Thrive’ program also emphasised the importance of perception, fostering a sense of self-esteem and self-worth. Furthermore, the session emphasised the significance of building a robust support network and knowing which resources to use and how to seek help when needed.

We would like to thank the Bully Zero team for their incredibly engaging and enlightening session today.
