Local School and Bank Say No to Bullying


​Last Friday, the eighth National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (NDA) was celebrated right across Noosa. 

The National Day of Action is Australia’s key anti-bullying event for schools and in 2018, schools were called on to imagine a world free from bullying.

Locally, Noosaville State School did its part by getting involved and wearing orange. The leadership group for 2018 led the way with hundreds of students and teachers in colour. Noosaville State School Principal, Sharyn Rieger said she was thrilled for the school to get behind the message that we all belong, providing a focus for all schools in saying Bullying. No Way! 

“Like so many other schools, at Noosaville we celebrate our cultural diversity as being one of our greatest strengths. Our school also lives by the words that bullying and violence, in or outside of our school, are not okay at any time,” Sharyn said. 

“That example starts with our school leaders, and I know this is a combined project they’re all excited about being involved with. It works in well with our school motto - Be the best you can be,” she added. 

Doing its part to spread the message to the many travellers along busy Beckman's Road, the school’s electronic sign kept passers-by informed about the latest activities in and around the school. It’s part of the many sponsorships the school enjoys with the Tewantin Community Bank branch.  

“We’re growing with a growing community, and our sign is great to share the many activities going on in our school. We also value our continued relationship with John Hague and Bendigo Bank. Their sponsorships already assist us greatly and our P&C Association in particular, really appreciates the support the Tewantin Community Bank provides,” Sharyn concluded.
