Countering Bullying

Anti-bullying resources for students

PictureSometimes bullying starts as teasing but then gets worse. None of us like to be bullied; if this happens to you, take some action to protect yourself and report it to BHI staff. You can also discuss concerns about bullying with a counsellor at Student Life by phoning 9286 9891.

If you witness bullying, consider what is the best response you can make. If you are seen as a bully, then it's time to take steps to change your behaviour.

These websites have lots of resources to get you thinking.

This is a comprehensive Australian site that has space for students to share their experiences and learn of coping strategies:
