On Tuesday 12 August, students and teachers from Buckley Park College went along to the MCG for the official launch of a new cyberbullying video.
The Education Department has come together with Melbourne Football Club, and students from Victorian government schools to send an important message about bullying. The message is: ‘I have your back’.
While it can seem daunting, there are safe ways to be an upstander, online and face-to-face.
While it can be hard to see someone being bullied in person or online, it’s even harder to be the person being bullied.
We can all do something help. We can all be upstanders.
An upstander is a person who speaks or acts in support of an individual or cause, particularly someone who intervenes on behalf of a person being bullied.
Melbourne Football Club players Jack Viney, Max Gawn and Lauren Pearce along with students from Buckley Park College share effective ways to address cyberbullying and be an upstander online.The video was shown at the MCG on Saturday during the game between Melbourne and Collingwood. Melbourne are going to be showing the video again at the game against Sydney this Friday night (16AUG 7:50pm at the MCG)
