Breaking the Circle is a new program to Gilmore being introduced by Student Services.

The program encourages students and teachers to wear Breaking the Circle wristbands, as a sign of commitment towards making Gilmore an anti-bullying zone.

Gilmore principal Carolyn Cook said the program was to address bullying throughout the school.

‘Gilmore is no worse than any other school for bullying and the program is to emphasise that no bullying is acceptable,’ she said.

‘The program is paid for by the college.

‘It is envisioned that the program will be a whole school initiative to promote positive interactions between students.’

Students are not required to wear the wrist bands.
