Taabinga State School is one of 45 recipients across Queensland which is receiving State Government funding to help stop cyberbullying.
Students at the school will design and paint a wall mural with anti-cyberbullying messages.
The State Government is distributing more than $180,000 across Queensland for local projects designed to tackle cyberbullying.
Child Safety Minister Di Farmer said the “Tackle Cyberbullying Grants” program had awarded six young people and 39 community organisations grants of up to $5000 each.
“Bullying of any kind is never acceptable, and cyberbullying is especially insidious,” Ms Farmer said.
“Most of us carry the internet around in our pockets, with smart phones and other devices now an almost unavoidable part of everyday life.
“That gives cyberbullies unprecedented access to harm their victims at school, at home, in public and private, and we are absolutely committed to stamping it out.”
