Bullying

Bullying and Cyber-bullying are becoming a significant issue within our society.

Wadalba Community School recognises the need for us to work with you to proactively address this issue. In order to do this we have developed an interactive online anti-bullying information and reporting site "Wotz up, Wadalba".
