Things to do
Bullying is NOT OK and we encourage families to join us for a special online event to support young people and empower them to believe that ‘Awesome ends in ME’!
Join authors Hayley Frazer (Something A Little Different) and Catch Tilly (Otherwise Known as Pig) as they discuss their books that deliver an important message about bullying, learning to accept help, embracing diversity, acceptance and how you have the power to make a positive impact and let those affected by bullying know that you are there for them.
Hayley Frazer is a year 10 student with dyslexia. Like many with this diagnosis, her educational journey has been far from easy and drawing on her experiences she has published a story about standing up to bullies, courage and friendship.
When Catch Tilly, a former high school teacher now working as an author and script writer, wrote a play about bullying she thought she was writing an exaggerated version of reality. Then the kids she was performing for told her “it’s just like this in the playground”. This was 13 years ago and the energetic theatre performer and writer has been researching bullying ever since, developing the bones of her 2006 play into a vividly realised, black-witted, confronting new novel for teenagers.
This informative and interactive event will inspire you and encourage young people to build strength, confidence and resilience and ultimately allowing them to thrive.
