School student talks

The training team at Equal Opportunity Tasmania works co-operatively with schools, colleges and other educational institutions to provide a range of FREE information sessions. Presentations to students on issues relating to discrimination, harassment and bullying can assist schools to develop their capacity to:

  • accept and embrace diversity
  • celebrate and respect differences
  • promote non-discriminatory practices
  • empower those groups who are most likely to experience discrimination, harassment and bullying

Our talks are designed for students from Grade 4 upwards. We can work with the school to design programs using Kahoot that are age appropriate and engaging for students. For higher grade levels we can tailor the sessions for your school / college.

Topics covered in sessions depending on the grade level of students are:

  • Diversity
  • Respect and kindness
  • Stereotypes – prejudice - discrimination
  • Types of bullying including cyber-bullying
  • Bystanders behaviour
  • What to do if it happens to you or you see it
  • Equal Opportunity Tasmania and the Anti-Discrimination Act 1998
  • Victimisation, inciting hatred and sexual harassment
  • Discrimination in employment
  • Rights and responsibilities

“Equal Opportunity was a valuable learning session for our students.  The content discussed by the facilitator was age appropriate and thought provoking.  Information from the seminar has direct the Australian Curriculum and fits perfectly within the Department of Education’s respectful schools framework and cross-curricular priorities.  The seminar could be used as a one off talk to a class or embedded within a teaching and learning unit with a particular focus on the area being studied.  Presentations would be relevant for all age groups.  Thanks to the team at Equal Opportunity, we really valued your presentations and will be in touch for further presentations next year!”
