Bullying is a major societal issue in Australia, with twenty-seven per cent of young people reporting they are bullied every two weeks or more often.
On National Buddy Day, an initiative developed by NAB and the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, we encourage teachers, parents and students to hold fun activities to help us in our bid to reduce bullying, and create friendly and caring school communities through our Better Buddies program.
Every school that registers receives a National Buddy Day toolkit. In this toolkit, we have included ideas for how your
school can promote, participate in and/or fundraise for Buddy Day this year.
