What is bullying?
Bullying is the systematic abuse of power, causing physical or psychological hurt to the victim. The hurt is unprovoked and repeated. For example, a pupil is systematically excluded from activities by others, is called unpleasant names, or is hit.
This sort of problem exists in all countries, but may be described using a variety of words. The word “bullying” may not have an exact equivalent in other languages, but the behaviour exists nevertheless.
Is bullying widespread in our School?
A survey of Primary and Secondary pupils, carried out some years ago, showed that the great majority of pupils experience virtually no aggression, but some pupils do.
