CHILDREN can now get tips on how to deal with bullies from a new website set up by education authorities across Australia.
The Bullying No Way! site was launched today as part of the national day of action against bullying and violence.
It offers facts about bullying for children and their parents and tips on how to deal with it or who to talk to.
The site will also have a choose-your-own-adventure game for students to learn how to deal with bullying and moderated forums where children can discuss their problems with peers.
West Australian education minister Elizabeth Constable said the website would promote strategies to help different jurisdictions and education authorities develop ways to address bullying.
“School communities are working hard to make school environments safer, more supportive and respectful for all young people and adults – places where everyone is free from bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence,” she said in a statement.

“The new Bullying No way! website contains the latest information on bullying and violence and is a useful resource to support school communities in this important venture.”
Dr Constable chairs the council of Australian education ministers, which launched the website.
The council will also launch an iPhone app which will let students access instant information about bullying and what to do about it.
