Minister for Equality Martin Foley has committed to the Safe Schools anti-bullying program for Victoria.
Earlier this month, Safe Schools seemed under threat in Victoria as the Liberals promised to scrap the program if elected, and Labor would not definitively commit to renew its funding.

 

He said the government will work with LGBTI communities and parents of LGBTI children to further improve the program.

“Particularly trans kids, who have been really, really under the hammer in recent times, used almost as political fodder during the marriage equality debate,” he added.

Foley said the use of trans children as political footballs by conservatives had been “disappointing” and involved “deliberate misrepresentation” of Safe Schools.

“Safe Schools is a resource that families and LGBTI kids in schools called for,” he explained.

“It allows schools the ability to engage in a way in which schools are safe for LGBTI kids and their families to be who they are and participate.

“The deliberate misrepresentation of the program has been shameful, and we know it’s not going to go away.

“I would ask those people to think about what this deliberate wedge politics means for that questioning kid in the school in their community.”

Safe Schools is currently being used in 321 Victorian public secondary schools, with 83 remaining to adopt it.

Foley said that a number of primary schools and non-government schools, including religious schools, have also chosen to use the program.

“[Safe Schools] filled a gap identified by parents and by young LGBTI people themselves,” said Foley.

He clarified that Safe Schools is like any other program, and funding cannot strictly be renewed until the upcoming new budgetary process time.

“The work is already being done, internally within government, and consultations with community through our education advisory committee that’s in place for our LGBTI policy,” he said.

“Having embedded Safe Schools into the education department, we are going through the normal government processes of reviewing and supporting, and I am very confident of taking the whole program of support for LGBTI kids to a whole new level.”

Asked directly if the future of Safe Schools was guaranteed, Foley answered positively.

“I can give a guarantee that my good friend the Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, the biggest champion of making sure that LGBTI kids are safe in their schools and their communities… will see Safe Schools, and the culture behind Safe Schools, embedded in our schools for all time,” he said.

Foley said improvements are still needed to the program because LGBTI children continue to suffer from bullying, disengagement, and poorer mental health outcomes.

“Based on the learnings of where we’ve gone, [we will] make the program even more effective,” he said.

“Every kid deserves the right to the best possible education, and LGBTI kids are disproportionately excluded from that.”

  1. What educational credentials does Dr, Anne Kennedy have?
    Early Childhood Australia – who is involved & what credentials do they have to advocate on the part of children?

  2. What I am worried about is that small children will be taught that sex is alright & that when it feel nice – it is okay – that nothing could be wrong – that nothing nasty happened.
    Even when daddy or uncle Max or the PE teacher caused it to happen – WE DON’T TELL because it was nice & daddy & uncle Max & the PE teacher are nice too.
    It is confusing the child to believe that sexplay is acceptable.
    Like massing for fun games where the adults get to touch the child inappropriately – but we all love each other & it was playing a game & it was nice & so the child was not sexually abused.

  3. A Must Read:
    There Are No Sunglasses – Israeli Press Confirms Syrian Shoot-Down of IDF F16s Over Syria
    More than one israeli aircraft was injured during the response of our air defense to a new Israeli aggression.

    There were reports from within occupied Palestine in Israeli enemy settlements, a state of panic, an escape of settlers, the opening of shelters in Israeli settlements & a closing of all roads ……….
    The enemy media said that Israel had asked Russia & the United States to intervene urgently to contain the situation.

    ME:
    Israel & Trump are in their element here & engage with gusto.
    Israel is the size of a postage stamp – 4 times the size of Hiroshima.
    When would it be suitable for Russia & the United States to intervene?
    In time to save Israel from a fatal strike?

  4. If you ever thought that your Government was here to ‘help you’ then you need to have a look at your program…… your brainwashed one!
    Your vote means nothing as the more you try and change things the more nothing changes…… democracy for stupids!
    Your Government is a Corporation registered in Washington DC and being a Corporation is about profit and survival.
    Like all Corporations your Government has links to other Corporations and one being ‘The United Nations’.
    The United Nations is not about ‘Uniting Nations’ but the destruction of same….. Nations…… go read Agenda 21/30!
    So…. how would this diatribe have anything to do with schools and ‘safe schools?
    It does, as controlled education controls the future, the politically correct, non creative yes man of the future who will accept same sex as normal!

    1. Hi Gus:
      Well said!

      Interesting Video: Youtube.
      The Problem With Play – Dr. Anne Kennedy. 1:28 minutes long.
      .”…..parents often ask educators – “what do you mean by play based approach & how are you teaching my children through this approach?”
      Often educators find that difficult to explain & to help parents to understand –
      How indeed – children learn through play –
      & what the role of the educator is in the play.
      I think one of the things educators could ask themselves is – how much are children actually playing across the day & have we got a balance right between the children’s right for free play – for that play that engrosses them entirely in their own world
      & –
      play where we might want to do some intentional teaching – & some learning with the children.

      Play is indeed a very effective way to teach children.
      Our kids are curious about the world around them & like thirsty sponges they absorb all manner of material.
      As parents – it is our responsibility to keep our children safe from the misguided & ambitious element that would take over our role in our child’s life – to further their own status quo.

  5. Gus:

    According to Revelations – End Time Prophecy – there will be a time of RAPTURE -where the faithful will rise up into the heavens to meet Jesus Christ in His descent to Earth at the Second Coming.

    We would want to be awake the night that Israel vanished off the face of the Earth.
    How could we miss such a momentous event.
    “Where were you on the day?”
    “I slept through it.”

  6. Sorry I forgot:

    CRAZZFILES – can you please answer these questions for me.

    1. What exactly is a “non- profit organisation” (?)
    2. Who do they answer to (?)
    3. Are they a self appointed group of people who have taken it upon themselves to advis & advocate (?)
    4. If so – do they have a right to dictate agenda in society. (?)
    5. If they are non-profit …
    a) where does their money come from – TO PAY SALARIES – THE RENT –
    THE ELECTRICITY BILL – etc:
    b) do they pay taxes

  7. Hola Gus:
    Muchas gracias hombre!
    I shall watch with interest.

    “the major tax exemptions of this land, since at least 1945, have been operating to promote a hidden agenda”

    The most immediate agenda is SELF-SERVE.
    The PARASITE AMONGST US that wants it all for free.
    The FREELOADER WITHIN OUR MIDST who believes that they are SPECIAL.
    The LETHARGIC BACKSLIDER who seek any & every opportunity to GET AS MUCH AS THEY CAN with as little effort as possible.
    The TRUE BLUDGER IN OUR SOCIETY – that would sell us all for what they can get.

    Not-for-profit organisations that will bend in any direction to accommodate – any deviant purpose – to perpetuate themselves – self serve.

  8. * “Since the end of WW1, we have been responsible for the institutionalization of conflicting interests.”

    * “Is there any means known, more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people? – no more effective means than war, is known, to that end, to humanity.”
    This is the excuse – the rational – that hides the act of looting nations & the culling of the population to steal away their assets.

    * “That group of 20 historians ultimately becomes the nucleus of the American Historical Society.”
    To manufacture the cover story which hides the crimes of the establishment, the fear of getting caught – of consequences – plagues the deviant constantly – but also to allow the crims to be contrived.

    * “Soap Opera – everyone wants to play – a compulsory retirement age of 60 years must be reinstated – to rid the workforce of the dead wood – Society must be constantly transfused with new blood to make sure that stagnation & does not fester – become septic.”
