Stymie

Stymie encourages bystanders (your children) to help and support their peers by making anonymous notifications using their site. These notifications will be about students who are experiencing bullying or harm.
 
The first conversation we have, will be with the student who is experiencing harm - they will know they are not alone. 

The Gap State High School is committed to harnessing the power of bystanders to change the 'culture of acceptance' of bullying in our community, a problem even the government admits is endemic amongst our youth.

Stymie is working with The Gap State High School to reduce harassment and to teach your children socially responsible behaviour in the cycle of bullying. The Gap State High School will also be encouraging our students to use Stymie to report other welfare concerns they may have, in support of their peers or themselves. 

We will be supported in our launch of this site, with information sessions to staff, students and parents in September and November this year.

Rachel Downie, Director of Stymie presented at The Gap State High School in March for students, parents and staff. 

Stymie complements The Gap State High School’s existing student well-being and positive education framework and was built in consideration of the Australian Safe Schools Framework and the recommendations from the Australian Covert Bullying Prevalence Study. The Gap State High School is committed to harnessing the power of bystanders to change the 'culture of acceptance' of bullying in our community; a problem even the government admits is endemic amongst our youth. 

The word stymie means to stop or thwart. We want it to stop. And so do our kids.
