Bullying - 'No Way'

Bullying No Way
Explicit Expectations:
  • Define the term “bullying”.  The DoE definition is: “Bullying is repeated verbal, physical, social or psychological behaviour that is harmful and involves the misuse of power by an individual or group towards one or more persons. Cyberbullying refers to bullying through information and communication technologies. Bullying can involve humiliation, domination, intimidation, victimisation and all forms of harassment including that based on sex, race, disability, homosexuality or transgender. Bullying of any form or for any reason can have long-term effects on those involved including bystanders. Conflict or fights between equals or single incidents are not defined as bullying.”

  • Define the term “bystander” and “upstander”.

  • Show the students and discuss BBPS anti-bullying plan.

  • Discuss with the students that Bullying can be physical or verbal (if needed revise previous PBL lessons “Using Kind Words” and “Keeping our hands and feet to ourselves”).
