Bullying and Conflict Resolution


Mona Vale SLSC will not tolerate bullying of any kind. Bulling is usually an act that is repeated over time that can have lasting and damaging effects on people. Bullying can take many forms:

  • Verbal bullying like name calling, teasing, putting someone down or threatening.
  • Physical bullying like scratching, hitting, poking, punching, kicking, tripping, spitting, breaking someone’s things, pulling faces or making rude hand signals.
  • Social or Psychological bullying like embarrassing someone in public, spreading rumours, alienating, ignoring or excluding, stalking, lying or playing horrible jokes.
  • Cyber bullying where technology has been used to hurt someone else by sending hurtful messages, pictures or comments.

All Mona Vale SLSC members have a responsibility to speak up if they become aware of, or observe something considered inappropriate. Please contact a member of the Mona Vale SLSC Member Protection, Welfare and Support Team or follow the SLSA Reporting Guidelines.
