Student Action Plan Against Bullying

Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.

Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because I've sometimes been in situations where you try to hit back but you freeze, when you try to say something back but your mind goes blank. I care because I remember how horrible it was. that is why I care

  • To stop bullying you should all help your friends when they need but you shouldn't be bystanders. You should speak up and tell teachers when somebody is bullied, you shouldn't gossip and be the bully because it is Verry mean. You should always do good things to people who been bullied and break the gossip chain but you shouldn't be a cyberbully because, words scars, rumours destroy and bullies kill. So always think because tweeting, texting, T.H.I.N.K, is it true ?, is it helpful ?, is it inspiring ?, is it nice ?, is it kind ?
