Lessons From Finland To Boost Anti-Bullying Effort In WA Public Schools

Western Australian Educators will today learn lessons from a highly successful anti-bullying program in Finland to help address the insidious practice in local schools.

Education Minister Liz Constable, and world leading experts in the field of bullying, aggression and violence research – Professor Christina Salmivalli from Finland and WA’s Professor Donna Cross – will address principals and school staff at workshops designed to help schools tackle the issue.
“Professor Salmivalli’s program has produced significant reductions in incidences of bullying at Finnish schools.”
The workshops will inform school principals and staff of the latest international research and provide guidance on how to translate it into effective action within their school communities.
