Kimberley O’Brien, our principal child psychologist,  attended the invitation-only National Cyberbullying Forum on Wednesday, 4th November 2009 as a consultant.

This event was hosted by the NSW Department of Education and Training and examined issues such as the prevalence of cyberbullying, the correlation between online and offline bullying and the shared characteristics of bullies and the people they bully, as well as hearing stories from students who have experienced cyberbullying first-hand.  Keynote speakers included cyberbullying experts Professor Donna Cross and Dr. Marilyn Campbell, as well as a panel of experts from a range of media such as Girlfriend Magazine, Bebo.com, NineMSN and Telstra. The event was covered by Channel 10 News.
