Key partnership to reduce bullying in schools
The Department of Education is partnering with the Alannah and Madeline Foundation and Dolly’s Dream to reduce bullying and cyberbullying in NT Government schools.
The safety and wellbeing of all young people is a key priority of the Department of Education. This partnership is a valuable opportunity to improve student wellbeing and contribute to a safe, supportive and inclusive environment that enables students to engage, grow and achieve.
Over the next four years, the Department of Education and Alannah and Madeline Foundation will deliver Dolly’s Dream eSmart Program to NT schools. This will include:
- The delivery of eSmart tools include Smart Digital Licence and teacher resources to all NT Government schools for Year 6 students
- Two parent, teacher and student Dolly’s Dream Connect workshops for 50 NT Government schools in identified high priority regions
- Deliver Dolly’s Dream eSmart framework to ten schools in up to two high priority regions
- expansion of Dolly’s Dream workshops delivered to the Darwin and Katherine based Stars programs.
The rollout of these programs will see thousands of Territory students, teachers and families benefit from tools and support they need to help reduce all forms of bullying in schools.
