Bullying

Bullying is a big problem in schools, and outside of school. There are three main types of bullying, verbal, physical and cyber-bullying. Around 3.2 million kids are bullied each year. People can step up to help the victim, but most people are too scared to do so.

Bullying Prevention

Being bullied can effect your physical and emotional safety, and can also effect your focus to learn at school. At school, teachers know bullying isn't a good thing, so if you witness bullying or are a victim to it, don't be afraid to tell someone. If you are a bystander, stand up to the bully and help whoever is being bullied.
