“People talk about bullying, but you can be your own bully in some ways as you can be the person who is standing in the way of your success, and that was the way for me”
Katy Perry
When almost every third child is bullied, your child could be one of them. Children who are 
bullied, don’t always tell what is happening to them, as their cognitive repertoire is too 
innocent to take into account the bigger picture. They may appear nervous, sad, angry, 
anxious and withdrawn—without knowing what prompts their behaviour. 
We can hope to reduce bullying by tightening codes and rules but may not be able to fully 
eradicate it, as evidence suggests. The age of technology has only made it more complex. 
But, there are many good things we can do in our schools and communities that can dampen 
bullies and their behaviour. Join us to learn and ponder collectively to create an inclusive 
milieu of respect and dignity, which brings the best out of us.
