This Anti-Bullying Week the theme is Make a noise about bullying.
We urge everyone to come together to
have discussions about what we mean by bullying behaviour, how we can tell the
difference between ‘banter’ and bullying and how we can make changes to reduce
bullying. Together, we can make a difference if we make a noise to stop bullying.
Too often, we are silent when we see bullying
take place, silent about the hurt bullying
causes, and silent when we hear bullying
dismissed as ‘just banter’.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Of course, we won’t like everyone, and we don’t always agree, but we
can choose respect and unity.
This Anti-Bullying Week let’s come together to have discussions about
what bullying means to us, how banter can turn into something more
hurtful, and what we can do to stop bullying.
Together, we can make a
difference and take a stand against bullying.
Bullying can happen at any time and at any age, from the playground to Parliament, and from our phones to our homes,
let’s make a noise and stand up against bullying.Watch the official 'Make noise about bullying' video: Watch this clip to find out how to not like someone with respect...Sound advice from a teacher:
The Anti Bullying Alliance define bullying as:
''The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group
by another person or group, where the relationship involves
an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or
psychological. It can happen face to face or online.''
