Stymie - Anti Bullying

Anti-bullying Policy 

Bullying behaviour has three key features. It involves the intentional misuse of power in a relationship. It is ongoing and repeated, and it involves behaviours that can cause harm. The NSW Department of Education requires all NSW public schools to have an Anti-bullying Plan which details the strategies implemented to reduce student bullying behaviours: LBHS Anti-bullying Plan 

The NSW anti-bullying website can be visited to find evidence-based resources and information for schools, parents and carers, and students:

What is Stymie? 

  • Stymie was developed with consideration for the Australian Safe Schools Framework, as well as the recommendations of the Australian Covert Bullying Prevalence Society. 
  •  Stymie allows bystanders to send anonymous notifications to our school, about someone who they believe is being bullied or harmed. 
  • This notification allows you to upload evidence, such as screen shots of social media posts and discussions, text messages or instant message conversations to help outline an incident. 
  • The school then receives this Stymie notification via an encrypted, anonymous and confidential email which can then be appropriately actioned by the school. 
  • It is important to note that Stymie does not store any information, it is merely the channel through which the information travels.

More than ever, you need to report any online bullying.  

More than ever, you need to report if you feel unsafe. 

Stymie it. 

You can report bullying or harm by simply going to the website, and report it anonymously.
