Petition launched



We wrote last week that it was time to take a stand and to help stop bullying by talking about it. We decided to do more than just talk – we started a petition and we need you to sign it.

We really believe that more needs to be done. Bullies seem to get away with it because good people stand by and just watch, listen and do nothing.
So here is the challenge ‘Good people of Franklin’, let’s do something together to make a difference and change the culture and nature of bullying.
Let’s put a stop to it! Whether it be cyber bullying, name calling, picking on someone, physical threats or any form of bullying – there is no place for it in Franklin.
We strongly believe that education is an important tool to help deal with bullying, so we have decided to put together a petition asking the Minister of Education to do more and encourage headmasters, school boards and teachers to take a more pro-active role.
We also acknowledge that without the input of parents and caregivers we are fighting a losing battle.
Everytime someone signs our petition an e-mail will be automatically sent to the Minister, making her constantly aware of our petition.
Please, go online, sign and share our petition.
Contact all your friends and family and encourage them to take a stance.
This may not be easy for you, however your vote counts.
It all starts with you and your decision to make a difference in the lives of those around you, who interact with you on a day to day basis.
Please do this, have the conversation, so that as a community voice, we can encourage the government to investigate and possibly provide a framework and funding to assist schools and parents, to deal with the situation.
We want to help change lives and we need your help. Be the change you want to see in everyone else. Please contact us with your views.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
