Bullying: what are YOU going to do about it?
These programs are just a small taste of what is available but will hopefully give you a starting point to make a difference in your class.
GirlPower was developed by Dana Kerford to teach girls social skills to deal with indirect bullying. Girls are taught come-backs and how to have a conversation with a bully to tell them what they are doing is not okay. This is done through role-play in a non confronting way. Essentially GirlPower is a friendship program, teaching girls the difference between normal conflict and mean-on-purpose behaviour.

Friendly Schools Plus
Friendly Schools Plus is a whole school program that helps to develop social and emotional skills in students in order to prevent bullying.
The Friendly Schools PLUS program draws on 13 years of extensive and rigorous research by the Child Health Promotion Research Centre (CHPRC) into best practice to build social skills and reduce bullying in school communities (Friendly Schools, 2013). This research has been nationally recognized as an evidence-based whole school program that can effectively reduce bullying behavior in schools.
Remember, prevention is better than cure!
The Friendly Schools Plus program has been designed to address three key aspects of students’ experiences that have been related to improve social and emotional development. These aspects are : promoting positive peer relationships, promoting positive teacher- student relationships and explicit teaching that relates to emotions, social knowledge and skills (Friendly Schools, 2013).
The Kimochi Way
The Kimochi program and feeling lessons provide character education whereby students practice managing lifes challenges acting with character and choosing to be:
- Compassionate &
Throughout the program Kimochi encourages that all students be aware that:
- Everyone has feelings
- Everyone wants to belongand be included
- There is room for everyone at school &
- Everyone makes mistakes.
Kimochi (Kee.Mo.Chee), which means 'feeling' in Japanese, are plush, educational toys designed to help kids identify, understand and manage their feelings in a safe, fun and comfortable way.
Social and Emotional Learning
Social and emotional learning will help children to be successful not only in school but within life as well. Studies have found that a whole school based social and emotional program yields many benefits in students, feelings and attitudes, indicators of behaviour adjustment and school achievement.
Substance abuse, self harm and bullying happenings are unfortunately on the rise. Therefore the push for teachers to make an impact on students' lives by including social and emotional learning within their classroom programs.
