School bullying programs must address risk to vulnerable students

Greens spokesperson for education Hon Alison Xamon MLC has called for investment in school bullying programs that specifically address the risk to vulnerable students, including Aboriginal students, those with disability, LGBTI students and those from non-English speaking backgrounds.

Speaking in Parliament in the lead up to National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence on 15 March, Ms Xamon said that bullying can have lasting effects on children and their families, and can impact on mental health and wellbeing, physical health, school attendance and school achievement.
