Bullying


Being bullied can leave you feeling miserable and worthless, bullies can also frighten you so much that you don’t

want to go to school and pretend to be ill to avoid them.  


Bullying is different things for different people, including:

 

  • Being called names or teased
  • Being pinched, punches, pushed, or pulled
  • Being threatened or intimidated
  • Having your bag and other things thrown around
  • Having rumours spread about you
  • Being ignored and left out
  • Being forced to hand over money or possessions
  • Getting silent or abusive phone calls or offensive texts
  • Insulting messages about you on the internet or by Social Networks, SMS, BBM and other electronic communication

 

If you are being bullied, the most important thing you can do is to tell someone you trust.
