National Buddy Day is an initiative developed by NAB and the Alannah & Madeline Foundation to celebrate friendship and help raise awareness of bullying in Australian primary schools.
Teachers, students and parents can all get involved. The ‘Band Together’ challenge incorporates any activities you love, and is a fun way to involve your whole school while raising awareness to help reduce bullying in our schools. Schools can also incorporate a fundraising element if they wish to do so.
By registering to participate you will receive a National Buddy Day Toolkit, which is full of activity ideas, resources and templates to help you plan what the day will look like, and promote your activities to your school and wider community.
This year's National Buddy Day will be held on Wednesday 15 June.
