The Bullying-Free NZ Week Awards 2019 asked students and schools to use creative media to depict their interpretation of the theme for this year’s Bullying-Free NZ Week Whakanuia Tōu Āhua Ake! Celebrating Being Us! Students produced videos, made PowerPoint presentations, or created written or art works to show what bullying is about, and what it meant to them personally.

Congratulations to everyone who entered.

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.

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

When considering the entries, the judges looked at the simplicity, clarity and impact of the message, the understanding of bullying behaviour demonstrated by students, and the originality of their approach.

Our winners!

Take a look and be inspired! All our winners and those receiving a special merit or highly commended are great examples of student voice, classroom activities, and the fantastic work of these schools in bullying prevention.
