Stymie

Keebra Park  is committed to harnessing the power of bystanders to change the 'culture of acceptance' of bullying in our community, a problem even the government admits is endemic amongst our youth.

Stymie is a digital platform that allows students to send anonymous notifications to the School about someone who they believe is being bullied or harmed. Stymie encourages bystanders (your children) to help and support their peers by making anonymous notifications using this site. These notifications will be about students who are experiencing bullying or harm.

The first conversation we have, will be with the student who is experiencing harm - they will know they are not alone. 

Stymie is working with Keebra Park State High School to reduce harassment and to teach your children socially responsible behaviour. Keebra Park will also be encouraging our students to use Stymie to report other welfare concerns they may have, in support of their peers or themselves.

Stymie does not store any information and was built with the consideration of the Australian Safe Schools Framework and the recommendations from the Australian Covert Bullying Prevalence Study.
