APPLICATIONS are open for the third round of grants for the state government's Bully Stoppers program.
Member for Northern Victoria Wendy Lovell said the government had provided $750,000 to 187 schools.
"Since the start of the program in 2013, students have educated their peers about cyber safety, students have written anti-bullying songs and choreographed anti-bullying dances, designed iPad apps and hosted student forums on bullying," she said.
"Schools in central Victoria have an opportunity to raise awareness of bullying and spread the important Bully Stoppers message – make a stand and lend a hand."
Applications close July 18. For more, visit www.education.vic.gov.au/about/programs/bullystoppers
