Today's National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence will be marked by many schools, but nearly 900 Border students made their point a little early.
The entire population of Wodonga Primary School formed a human chain around the school's perimeter on Thursday to help build understanding of the issues.

"Every year we try to come up with something different that's symbolic to get our whole school together," assistant principal Jye Williams said.
"The joining of the hands across the school has really been about us standing united with one another as a school community to say no to bullying.
"Making sure that our kids, you know, the future citizens of the community, really have the skills to be able to deal with a wide variety of problems."
One of the student leaders, Maisy Barton, 11, of year 6, said her group stood in the ground's back corner and saw the drone overhead taking pictures.
"It was pretty cool how we all linked hands and showed that we can all stop bullying and be kind," she said.
