Say no to weighing kids at school
The Government is considering the compulsory weighing of children in Primary School. We are appalled by this move, which constitutes an enormous backward step placing more children at risk of weight stigma, and increasing the already alarming rates of children who are overly preoccupied with weight and shape. If you are also outraged by this, please sign and share the petitions with links below (there are two separate petitions - please support both). A big thanks to our colleagues from HAES Australia who have been working tirelessly to communicate to the Government about these issues, particularly Fiona Sutherland (Body Positive Australia) and Fiona Willer (Health, Not Diets).
