Echuca Primary School (208) students made a loud statement on Friday in an effort to stamp out bullying.

The school held a loud socks day as part of National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence.

Acting principal Gayle Bedford said students wore loud socks to emphasise that all children had the right to feel safe.

‘‘It is up to us all to make the right choices to ensure this happens,’’ she said.

‘‘Along with all Echuca state schools, 208 promotes the belief of ‘It’s My School Too!’ where the message is ‘Don’t be a bystander. If you see something that is wrong, do something about it’.

Ms Bedford said Echuca-Moama schools also practised restorative conversations with victims of bullies and bullies themselves.

‘‘This process is aimed at repairing the relationships and teaching the wrong-doers ways to change their behaviour, to be responsible for their actions and to make better choices in the future,’’ she said.

‘‘These skills will help them become positive citizens in our community.’’
