The Solid Kids, Solid Schools website (www.solidkids.net.au) was launched on Wednesday, 28th April at a community gathering at Beachlands Primary School in Geraldton, Western Australia.
The website provides information for staff, students and families to support Aboriginal students who are bullied or who bully others. The website is therefore divided up into sections with information suitable for each of these three groups.
The website is a result of a four year project, Solid Kids, Solid Schools. Researchers working with Aboriginal community members in the Yamaji (Mid West, Murchison) Region of Western Australia discussed topics such as differences and similarities of non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal ways of dealing with bullying. The project identified the cultural understandings of bullying among Aboriginal children and their communities, and also helped develop relevant and culturally-secure bullying prevention and management strategies.
The project is a collaborative study between ECU's Child Health Promotion Research Centre (CHPRC), CUCRH and the Telethon Institute of Child Health Research and is funded by Healthway.
