‘Bullying is NOT Cool’

Excerpt from the NLESD website:

Bullying is typically repeated behaviour that is intended to cause harm to another person(s). A person participates in bullying if they directly carry out, assist or encourage the behaviour in any way. Those that engage in bullying behaviour are perceived to be in a position of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal, social and/or electronic. In some circumstances bullying is an illegal activity. (SACS Policy, 2013. EECD).

Individuals who bully say or do something intentionally hurtful to others and they keep doing it, with no sense of regret or remorse – even when targets of bullying show or express their hurt or tell the aggressors to stop.
