Are Schools Safe?

No place should be safer than our schools...
but are they as safe as they could be?

That question is of particular interest to parents of students in New South Wales schools where gang activities, violent attacks, drug dealing, extortion and even playground stabbings led to a summit on school violence in 2002.

Alarm grows at school attacks


Teachers and classroom aides have been punched, bashed with metal cans, kicked, spat at and threatened with knives, metal stakes and replica guns.  Others have been injured by chairs, rocks and computers thrown by angry students; some have received written death threats.  The Herald Sun has catalogued dozens of frightening student attacks on government and private school teachers over the past 12 months.

BULLY BILL: $5 mil compo for hundreds of students - School violence costs us $1.5 million [Read Article]

 The article sited two significant items:

  1. Schoolyard fights and bullies have cost taxpayers almost $1.5 million in compensation over the past two years (in Australia).
  2. Payouts of up to $250,000 have gone to 31 students or other victims in Victorian government schools.


This conference and workshop will address these identified needs. Three areas of violence in schools will be addressed in separate workshops:

  • Train-the-Trainer: Bullying Stops When Respect Begins: Learn more
    Bullying Stops when Respect BeginsThis workshop leads to Certification as a Trainer in this special program. It examines the 4 domains that support an environment of bullying, they are, The Bully, The Victim, The School and The Parent. It will also examine the role of the largest segment of those who support bullying: The "stand by and do nothings." This program does not set forth punishment for bullying but rather replaces poor behavior with the positive character trait of Respect.

  • Train-the-Trainer: Assessing the Potentially Dangerous Student: Learn morePotentially Dangerous Students including Germany most recent Alleged School Shooter 4/02.

  • This workshop consists of Certification Training in using a unique Assessment Instrument to look at the Early and Imminent Warning Signs displayed by a student. It does not predict violence in any student but will point out a student who is in need of immediate help and what interventions are appropriate and available.

  • Terrorism and What Schools can do: Learn more

    This workshop will provide detailed information on the increasing incidents of terrorist attacks, to include Chemical and Biological agents and what schools can do.  It will explore the practice of terrorists turning to "soft targets" as the standard targets become more difficult to reach. Most importantly, this workshop will produce specific action schools may take as the Terrorist becomes heighten.

Think you don't have time to attend training?

How much time or money do you place on a student &/or Staff member's life or well being?

 It's a disturbing thought that schools, which should be the home of learning and nurturing, can also be violent and abusive.

The Director of the Bureau of New South Wales Crime Statistics and Research, Don Weatherburn, has delved into the violence and brutality in schools in the largest study of it's kind in Australia.
His study focused on schools which have had more than their fair share of violent incidents.


Australia International School Violence Prevention Conference and Workshop

Day 1 and 2. Train-the-Trainer: Bullying Stops When Respect Begins. This is not just a anti-bullying punitive campaign. It teaches students the character trait of respect and replaces bullying with a more positive behavior. It is both a campaign and a program. Upon completion, you will be Certified as a Trainer with the ability to return to your school and train both staff and students to help others.  There is a Trainers Manual and Student Character Ed. Workbook include as well. 

Day 3 and Day 4. Train-the-Trainer: Assessing the Potentially Dangerous Student. What are the the Warning Signs that Schools should know? If observed, what do they mean? How important is just one sign? In this workshop, these and many more questions will be answered. You will be Certified as a Trainer to certify others in your agency to use the Keys Assessment Instrument, a unique tool that weighs the early and imminent warning signs and leads to identifying students who are in need of immediate intervention. 

Day 5. Terrorism and What Schools Can Do. This workshop will look at common, existing delivery systems and concentrate on three major areas of vulnerability within schools;  
    * Transportation,  * Vending/Delivery Services,
 * Food Service. (see article
Terrorism is more widespread than ever and signs indicate that it will continue to expand. Guidelines published for industry and government agencies do not work well for schools. This workshop will discuss what does work and what schools can do practically. At the completion of this workshop, participants will have specific actions to take as Terrorism becomes heighten.
