'DIGITAL DETOX' is a new initiative that is specifically designed to engage young people to take a pledge to better use their social media for a period of 48 hours.
To support their pledge, Best Enemies in conjunction with the Bully Free Australia Foundation ("BFAF") will run a number of activities and workshops and provide resources to schools to participate across Australia.
GLENWOOD High School has made a strong commitment to stop bullying and harassment.
Using the Bully Busters Two and Anti-Bullying Forum recently , the school is actively tackling the issue with principal Erla McMaster leading the way.
She spoke about silence being the bully's best friend while deputy principal Lance Berry led students through the The Bully High School workshop.
It helped students understand the impact of bullying through video presentations and scenario studies.
Since the beginning of the school year, Best Enemies has visited and run workshops in schools across NSW, from PLC in Sydney on behalf of KYDs, to Mildura & Broken Hill with Mission Australia, Queanbeyan on behalf of Catholic Care to Inverell with the Inverell Family Youth Support Service.
