Families living in Brunswick, Coburg or Pascoe Vale real estate can be more confident about their school-aged children's interactions, given that the Victorian coalition government's Bully Stoppers program has been running for a year now.
Property in the Melbourne suburb is a great option for families, with nearby schools and local parks offering the perfect environment for kids.
However, school is harder for some than others due to bullying – something the government aims to put a stop to.
Minister for Education Martin Dixon recognised the National Day of Action against Bulling on March 20 and launched two films made by Victorian school students promoting the message of putting an end to bullying.
The program has gained significant traction, with thousands of children in the last 12 months alone pledging to be Bully Stoppers, noted Mr Dixon.
Parents of children living in property in Carlton and Brunswick will be pleased that the initiative has now reached 150 schools statewide.
Adding to the smart education initiatives is the coalition government's eSmart cyber initiative – a $10 million package that four of five Victorian schools have signed up to.
With forward-thinking programs in place, it's clear that Melbourne children are being invested in, with safe education opportunities.
