TAKING A STAND: Year 7 students at John Paul College spelt out the words no way for say no to bullying day.

SPELLING out the words no way on their football oval was how Year 7 students from John Paul College told their community they don't tolerate bullying within their school.

In recognition of the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence, students and teachers at the Daisy Hill school also took a say no to bullying pledge.

Head of middle school Mark Zietsch said the day gave the students an incentive to express their feelings.

"The day is extremely important for schools to adopt as it empowers students to feel they can play a part in the campaign against bullying and violence," he said.

"It gives students a voice and means to take action.

"The day also allows for dialogue at school and at home and a focus on teaching strategies to deal with bullying."

Mr Zietsch said his school enforced a zero tolerance to bullying and has numerous ways to support students.

"We have a range of processes, procedures and structures in place to deal with incidences of bullying," he said.

"For example, restorative practices, counselling and a variety of discipline measures.

"We believe in supporting students when harm has occurred and in educating them to understand the dynamics of bullying and the effect it can have on an individual."

In lead up to the day, students displayed bullying posters around their school and wrote newsletter reports which were delivered within their community.
