Friendly Schools Plus is a whole-school process for bullying prevention. Developed by Professor Donna Cross.
Friendly Schools is the first anti-bullying initiative for schools developed through extensive research with Australian children and adolescents. It is recognised nationally and internationally as a comprehensive, evidence-based framework that can reduce bullying behaviour. The Friendly Schools initiative has been designed to align with both the Australian Curriculum and the National Safe Schools Framework.
Staff at Balga Primary School have all been trained in this program. It is an integral part of the curriculum at our school.
