John Caldwell, anti-bullying advocate, Victoria’s current Australian of the Year and nominee for the Australian of the Year and bullying survivor, is marching with students Thursday 28th November in San Souci in celebration of White Ribbon and ending violence against women.
White Ribbon is the world's largest male-led movement to end men's violence against women and White Ribbon Australia is the only national, male-led primary prevention campaign to end men’s violence against women.
"I believe strongly in fostering respectful relationships in all areas of our community.” Says anti bullying advocate and VIC Australian of the Year John Caldwell.
Bullying in its worst form can lead to violence and as such we need to take a stand and say enough is enough." he concludes.
John has previously worked with San Souci Public School and their Bully Buster program, which involves students who have been trained to resolve low level conflict in the playground and work with students on the development of respectful relationships.
In honour of White Ribbon, John and all of the San Souci students will be wearing white and marching around San Souci from 8:15am next Thursday 28th November followed by a school assembly at 9:15 where John will be a special guest speaker.
“I’m hopeful that in the next 12 months we will together be able to stamp out bullying in the school yard, the workforce, on social media and at home by sheer hard work. It’s up to society and it’s up to us.” concludes John.
