Bullying-Free NZ Week Competition 2018 – winners announced

Students have been awarded for their creative responses to bullying, with 10 schools selected as this year’s winners in the Bullying-Free NZ Week multimedia competition.

Students produced videos, composed songs, made PowerPoint presentations, or wrote essays to show what bullying is, and what it meant to them personally.

Entries were judged in three age groups – Junior (Years 1-6), Intermediate (Years 7-8), and Senior (Years 9-13), across three categories: print, PowerPoint, and performance.

The standard of entries was exceptional and demonstrated the tremendous work and effort by students and staff. The judges were impressed with the level of understanding of bullying behaviour, and the clarity of the messages included in the entries.

The competition was held during the annual nationwide Bullying-Free NZ Week, an initiative of the cross-sector Bullying Prevention Advisory Group, a collaboration of 18 organisations committed to reducing bullying in New Zealand school.
