'Bully-Free Zone!' is a read, sing & learn along, positive behaviours approach to dealing with unacceptable behaviours in primary schools. It discusses strategies for dealing with negative behaviours, getting the whole school on the same page about behavioural expectations.
Students read, sing & learn along as the curriculum-aligned MP4 song & lyrics video plays, and lyrics display on your classroom whiteboard and/or other technological devices!
NB: Verse 3 is included for older students, to address the issue of cyberbullying behaviours ~ this can be omitted with younger students.
'Students from St Kieran's Catholic Primary School have been involved in the recording of this Keystone Creations song which promotes a positive behaviours/values approach to the serious issue of bullying.
The song lyrics and catchy chorus, 'Bullying is NOT OK - NO WAY!' help students to understand and address this unacceptable behaviour.' ~ (Mrs Terri Paterson, Principal)

Bullying is NOT OK - NO WAY! It's never a solution,
Deal with problems as they rise with conflict resolution.
Caring isn't optional, it's what we all expect;
Everyone is welcome here, but bullying we reject!
Everyone is valued here and all must be protected.
Negative behaviour at all times will be rejected!
Trying to annoy someone does not build good relations,
It's a form of what is known as private space invasion.
