Bullying in schools
Bullying is wrong and it affects the victim, impacts on our friends and family and the wider community, but also affects the perpetrator.
It is important that you do not struggle alone when you are being bullied, always tell a person who you can trust. This will then help you to access the support and guidance that you may need during a difficult time.
