Thank you to everyone who came along to our Evening of Jazz to celebrate our 50th year! We had a fabulous time, and we hope you did too. And of course, a huge thank you to those who catered and performed for us - we couldnt have done it without you.

Well be uploading the full album of photos here in the next week or so, so keep a lookout for those!

Last Thursday, we celebrated R U OK Day with a variety of lawn games, music and a free sausage sizzle. We encouraged students to check in with those around them, and of course we encourage you all to do the same. 

It doesnt have to be R U OK Day to support those around you!

Happy Wear It Purple Day 💜

Today supports LGBTIQA+ young people, showing them they have the right to be proud of who they are and who they are becoming. 🏳️‍🌈

The theme this year is ‘Write Your Story’ which encourages young people to embrace their unique perspectives and to share their stories with others. ✨

This year’s artwork was created by South Australian First Nations artist Lawson ‘Wukawe’ Dodd who is a proud Kaurna/Narungga/Nagarrindjeri man.

A student’s sense of belonging at school is how we gauge school connectedness. When a student feels valued, accepted, and connected to their environment, there are flow-on benefits that support their learning and engagement. Positive connections with peers and the school community can enhance the development of students’ cognitive, behavioural and emotional engagement. Further benefits of school connectedness which can help to prevent bullying include improved academic outcomes, reduced absenteeism, increased trust and respect, and empathy.

The NDA is Australia’s key bullying prevention initiative for schools, encouraging whole-school communities to work together to implement evidence-informed positive and proactive solutions to prevent and address bullying.

We are excited to announce that from this year, the NDA is permanently moving to the third Friday in August. In 2023, this will be Friday 18 August.

In 2022, 68% of Australian schools joined together to say Bullying. No Way! And BPIHS was included in this. The NDA is an opportunity to create a shared understanding of what is bullying, outline your bullying prevention policies and show support to students who may be experiencing bullying.

The NDA theme for 2023 is growing connections. This theme supports research findings that strong school community connections and social skills are protective factors in the prevention of bullying and help enable positive, help-seeking behaviours in students.

Whether youre a parent, teacher, student or member of the broader community, everyone has a role to play in preventing bullying.
