At Mary MacKillop School, a child’s class teacher initially manages incidents of bullying.
In reference to the Feeling Safe policy (Catholic Education Archdiocese of Brisbane) children are encouraged to report incidents of bullying to any one of five adults that he or she trusts, such as the school principal, a teacher, parent, family friend or counsellor.
