Orange has been the theme for many schools around the Central Coast recently, with Harmony Week and the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence coinciding with each other.
Empire Bay Public School students dressed up in orange for Harmony Week and held activities to celebrate cultural diversity.
On March 19, students were reminded to stand up against bullying for the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence.
Empire Bay Public School Assistant Principal, Jane Moore, said the day is important to make students aware of the support networks they have surrounding bullying at the school.
“Our seniors aimed to empower the other students and help them identify some of the issues around bullying,” Moore said.
“We want to encourage students to be upstanders and stand up for others, not turn a blind eye.
“It is a great opportunity for us to show them how they can be supported if a bullying situation occurs.”
