Kendenup Primary School students are writing messages of kindness to raise awareness of the effects of bullying for Do it for Dolly day on May 14.  

The messages will be written on pavers and laid in paths, gardens and underneath a rose planted by the students last year in honour of Dolly Everett.

Ms Everett took her own life as a 14-year-old after being a target of bullying and cyber bullying.

The foundation, Dolly’s Dream, was set up in 2018 to help prevent other families from going through the same experience.

Kendenup Primary School teacher Lyn Hambley said the students know Ms Everett’s story and understand the importance of spreading kindness and speaking up if something is wrong.

“It’s all about raising awareness,” she said.

“The message we push is to be kind and also to speak up when you’re in trouble.

“Parents, families and everyone who visits the school will see the students’ words and they will all think a little about spreading kindness too.”

Head of Dolly’s Dream Brad Langoulant thanked the primary school for their support as it will go a long way to help keep children safe online.

“This Do it for Dolly Day we are urging all families to learn about the seven signs of online bullying,” he said.
