WHAT IS BULLYING?

Bullying is defined as behaviour by an individual or group, usually repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally. For example:

  • Insults
  • Physical violence
  • Using cruel nicknames
  • Isolating someone
  • Making threats
  • Writing lies about someone
  • Taking or hiding of property
  • Spreading rumours
  • Being unfriendly
  • Teasing

HOW CAN WE STOP BULLYING?

Tell on the bullies
It’s not ‘telling tales’, it’s standing up for your rights as a person.

Ask for help
Don’t take the law into your own hands, you could make things worse and could end up getting into trouble yourself.

Counselling
Good advice and support may help bullies change their ways.

Listen to the victims
A victim needs to be given time and support.

Take it seriously
All incidents will be investigated and appropriate measures taken.

Are you a bully?
If you are then you should expect to be punished and your parent/guardian informed of your behaviour.
