This amazing program introduces students to “The Cycle of Bullying” and helps them to understand that there are in-fact 8 roles which are carried in a bullying scenario. Students are educated in how to recognise each of these active and passive roles and how they can act in a positive way in when they find themselves in each of these positions. Rather than passively avoiding potential bullying, students learn how to actively engage in and foster a positive anti-bullying culture. Our “Outsider Witness” session gives students an opportunity to see bullying from other students perspectives, thus fostering an environment of empathy and understanding.
Character Builders provided a fun-filled, interesting session to all our Year 9 students on Group Dynamics. The presentation was funny, entertaining as well as able to engage the students in a meaningful way. We are looking forward to Character Builders working with our students in the future.

“a great presentation to help support our ‘Real You’ day”
Frances Constantine – Kelvin Grove State College
This is one of our most popular presentations. By combining discussions of self-care, delayed gratification, challenge seeking (rather than avoidance), perspective and living a purpose driven life which focuses on others, students will be invited to explore their own character strengths and what their “line in the sand” moments are. This presentation is sure to leave your students knowing that they are capable of achieving all that they desire.
Thanks Character Builders for coming to talk to our Year 10s. The boys I spoke to said they loved your presentation.

We usually sit through presentations and I am always waiting for them to finish but this presentation was actually different. I feel what you said was real and I know the other boys felt it too. I found it really useful and am going to use some of the strategies in the near future.
