Student Action Plan Against Bullying

Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.

Tell Us Why You Care

  • When I grow up I want to be know for being a hero. NOT a lame person, like a villain or something. Also because I don't want my friends to get bullied.

  • I care because bullying hurts everybody involved, either directly or indirectly. Everybody deserves kindness. Remember, you are loved very much.

  • schools should be a place where you can learn and not be judged for your skin color, learning difficulties, or who you are as a student. we are all going to go through those fazes where we are nerdy and just filled with acne and just gross. we are children that go through puberty. we shouldn't be judged for that by the popular kids. we shouldn't be rewarded for good grades but then be scolded for getting less then an A+ . i care about the school because i have to go there and it will be my 4 years of high school I've dreamt of for years.

  • I care about bullying because why would someone take their time just to make fun of someone? You never know what someone is going through, also bullying could lead to very bad things.Such as not feeling wanted and sometimes even self-harm. I think it is heart breaking that a lot of people just let bullying happen.



    Madison — 15
  • I have seen what could come of it and how big of an impact it has. A kid a couple towns over ended up taking his own life because of it and it had a big impact on his community and the towns surrounding it.



    Manny — 16
  • because i am a person who has watched others go through it, I have defended my best friend from it and have no intention to stop. it is not fun to watch someone you care about go through this.

I had a friend that I considered my best friend. Unfortunately, she overheard one of my bullies and she stopped talking with me. The same thing repeated for the next couple of years until grade 2 when one of my bullies transferred schools. There were 2, but the other bully acted a bit friendlier. I was pretty quiet with a new friend I made for 2 years, until grade 4 when I made a new friend. We were pretty close for a few months until she started threatening that she wouldn’t be my friend anymore unless I bought her candy. I told my mum about this, and she said not to be friends with her anymore. I continued being her friend the next day though, as I only had 2 friends that year, so I didn’t want to stop. Soon she introduced me to 2 of her other friends, which were my acquaintances for the rest of the year. The next year, they didn’t want to talk to me anymore for an unknown reason. Instead, they grimaced at me in the hallways, which I soon learned to ignore. Nothing much other than that happened that year. Then the next year some of the boys in my class started calling me “Virus” which I soon learned to use to my advantage and went about my way alone and at peace for the rest of the year. After that year, i transferred to a new school where no one bothered me with insults, and i made a few more friends.
