Teachers, Thank you for Choosing Kindness with Smiggle x Dolly’s Dream
For kids, starting back at school is fun, but it can also feel scary, hard or challenging sometimes, especially if they’re experiencing bullying.
That’s why we’re excited to share a partnership between Smiggle and anti-bullying organisation, Dolly’s Dream. Smiggle and Dolly’s Dream are passionate about helping Australian kids ‘choose kindness’ and want all children to feel safe and confident when they head back to school in 2023.
So they’re banding together to provide tips and information on bullying to help you have supportive conversations with your students.
Please feel free to download and use these resources this term! We appreciate you getting involved and choosing kindness as you head into a new school year.
