About Kids View Project
The vision behind this anti bullying show is for the kids to not just learn about it, but to empower them to teach others and have a positive influence on those around them. With them creating the scripts, it not only gave them a sense of ownership, but something to be proud of.
When the idea of getting our kids involved in an anti-bullying play we never envisaged anything like this. The kids have truly been an inspiration, rising beyond all our expectations. Not only have we seen their growth and what they’ve learnt, they’ve been teaching us adults never to underestimate their abilities and ideas! Their commitment to this project shows their dedication and drive to make a difference to everyone around them. Regardless of how their performance goes, to us, they’ve already shown the best! We’re so happy that, as a club, we are able to provide them with the platform for them to express themselves.
We sincerely thank the cast, parents and club members behind the scenes whose dedication and hard work have made this small idea into a monumental moment for the kids.

Verbal & Social Bullying
Bullying continues to plague Australian schoolyards daily and has now become a social issue facing 1 in 5 school children. Verbal bullying is the use of words to taunt, threaten, insult, yell, embarrass, put down, swear, mock, threaten or intimidate the victim alone or in front of others. Verbal bullying is the most common form of bullying in Australia. Social bullying is common amongst peer relationships in which a student, partner, colleague or associate may make statements or commit actions that distresses another individual’s self-esteem and confidence.

Social media has enhanced our ability to be connected and engaged, the technology sector is now the largest in the world. Australia is one of the most connected and engaged in the world and on average we own at least 3 devices. While social media has fantastic benefits, it has come at a devastating cost, with families, friends and most importantly victims who feel there is nowhere to turn to. Words do hurt, and we’re reminded of the consequences of cyber bullying almost on a daily basis with reports that 1 in 8 Australians experience cyber bullying. Cyber Bullying Is A Crime.
