Workload Wednesday


Friday 16 March will see both the National Day of Action Against Bullying and the first meeting of the Queensland Government’s Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce.

More than 800 Queensland state schools have registered to be a part of the day of action, representing more than a quarter of the total number of participating schools across the nation. Queensland schools have a long history of working with students, parents and communities to address bullying and have developed many innovative and effective practices. There is always more that can be done.

The Queensland Government formed the Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce to develop a strategy for the whole community to address bullying. QTU President Kevin Bates has been appointed to the taskforce by the Premier, and he will carry the views of the more than 45,000 teachers and principals in schools and TAFE into the public debate.

To inform our contribution, the QTU has today launched a new page on the QTU website ( outlining the work of the taskforce and calling for teachers and schools to share their stories of addressing bullying. Why not take the opportunity to visit the page and share your story or that of your school.

Check the website for updates as the work of the taskforce progresses.
