What should yu do if you are being bullied ?

Tell the person to stop, that it is not OK and that you will tell an adult
Tell someone (a friend, a teacher or your parents)
Keep the evidence and keep a record.

Think it’s your fault. Nobody deserves to be bullied!
Fight back or bully a person back.
Keep it to yourself and just hope the bullying will “go away.” Make sure you report the bullying.

Good luck to our three first classes who have started their swimming lessons this week. For some of you it might be the first time to do lessons. We hope it will be an enjoyable experience for everyone. Remember it is important to be well behaved on the way down to the pool and on the way back to school. Everyone that sees your class walking will know that you are a St. Declan’s student.
