Harassment Policy Statement


The quality of relationships is crucial to the success of learning. At Glenunga International High School all members of the school community are expected to foster harmonious, interpersonal relationships by:

* Keeping our school community free from harassment, aggression and violence.
* All forms of harassment (sexual, verbal, racial, physical and intellectual) are totally unacceptable.


What Is Harassment?

Harassment is when someone treats you in a way that makes you feel embarrassed, uncomfortable, afraid or upset, because of your gender, race, intellect, appearance.


Types Of Harassment Are:

* Hitting, punching, pushing or bullying you.
* Getting a gang or group together to frighten you.
* Putting you down or humiliating you.
* Writing rude or offensive notes about you.
* Leaving rude or suggestive comments or graphics on computers for others to see.
* Annoying you or your family by making nasty phone calls.
* Leaving offensive comments or pictures where you will see them.
* Staring or glaring.
* Telling you offensive jokes or making suggestive comments or rude gestures.
* Hiding or destroying your property.
* Repeatedly teasing you or spreading rumours.
* Pestering you to go out with them when you have said ?NO?!
* Commenting on the size or shape of your body.
* Patting, pinching and touching another person.
* Touching or brushing up against you, often and deliberately, when you do not want them to.
* Pestering someone to go out or persistently making unwelcome requests for sexual favours.
* Sending offensive messages in writing or by telephone.
* Ridiculing, leering, wolf whistling or making sexual comments at a person or group of people.
* Spreading rumours about your sex life.

Harassment Is Not:

* Making genuine compliments.
* Behaving with common courtesy.
* Showing friendship.
* Accidental behaviour.


Harassment May Occur:

* Between students.
* Between staff and students - from a staff member to a student or from a student to a staff member.
* Between staff members.


Harassment Can Cause:

* Poor study performance.
* Academic results which do not reflect ability or effort.
* Absenteeism due to stress.
* Withdrawal from school or from particular courses and hence reduced career prospects.
* Loss of self confidence and self esteem.


What Can You Do If You Are Being Harassed?

If a student is being harassed, refer them to the Student Counsellor, Year Level Co-ordinator or Assistant Principal.

* Tell the person who is harassing you that you don't like it and that you want it to stop.
* Talk it over with your friends or your parents who will help you try and resolve the situation yourself.
* Talk it over with a teacher or student counsellor you feel comfortable with. Confidentiality will be maintained.
* Inform the Department of Education, Training and Employment, or the Equal Opportunity Commission. If harassment continues report the incidents to the Assistant Principals, Deputy Principal or Principal who will take action to ensure the harassment stops.
* Say "Stop!" . If it's repeated and uninvited - it's harassment. It's O.K. to tell someone!. Everyone has the right to feel safe at all times.


Making A Formal Complaint

When you make a formal complaint to your Principal, or the Superintendent, the person receiving the complaint will:

* Listen to you.
* keep what you tell them private.
* Talk to you about what can be done.


Action Following A Formal Complaint

Action which could be taken on your behalf as a result of your making a formal complaint, includes:

* Arranging separate meetings with you and the harasser to confirm your ideas of the situation.
* Arranging a meeting with you and the harasser together to resolve the situation.
* Counselling the harasser.
* Disciplining the harasser.


Consequences

Each case will be treated individually.

People involved directly in harassment and witnesses will be interviewed initially and later counselled.

Consequences include:

* Formal written warning placed in student's file.
* Counselling (optional).
* Student educational assignment to be completed.
* Written letter sent home, copy to student's file.
* Interview with student and parents.
* After school detentions.
* Suspension (1-5 days).
* Exclusion.
