On National Buddy Day, Wednesday 15 June, we’re encouraging primary schools across Australia to celebrate friendship and help raise awareness of bullying in primary school.

Bullying is a major societal issue in Australia, with twenty-seven per cent of young people reporting they are bullied every two weeks or more often.

On National Buddy Day, an initiative developed by NAB and the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, we encourage teachers, parents and students to hold fun activities to help us in our bid to reduce bullying, and create friendly and caring school communities through our Better Buddies program.
