What can I do away from school?

Bullying can happen anywhere. It can even happen in your family. If family members or others do things that hurt you, scare you, or make you feel bad about yourself, then this isn't okay.

Tell (click to expand)

  • Talk to your parents or another family member - tell them the who, what, when and where
  • Talk to your teacher or another staff member privately - tell them the who, what, when and where
  • If you can't talk to someone face-to-face go online or call a Kids Helpline counsellor (see Helpful websites).

If you feel unsafe you can call the police.
