3.en. 17. Take a stand against bullies, Take the pledge, Take action

Today we’ll have a very special guest in our class, Armin Quintana. He arrived at the Ramon Llull 6 years ago and was a student of 1st ESO of the European Section, just as you are now. This year he finished his senior year (2nd Batxillerat)with excellent grades  and he will leave our school to go to the university. He is a great student and a great person too. His English is excellent and he was classified in 3rd position in the Fonix competition. He will tell you about his experience at the Ramon Llull. You can ask him questions and he will also give you some advice on how to take a stand against bullies.

Today’s post is dedicated to bullying. Most of you have heard what bullying is, some of you might have been victims of bullies, but also might have been bullies some other times.  Let’s reflect on what a bully is and take action to make our school a……

bully free environment.

What is a bully?

How many forms of bullying can you think of?

Match the visuals with the different types of bullying




a) physical bullying: being hit, tripped, kicked, pinched etc

b) verbal bullying: being called names, teased, put down etc

c) psychological bullying: being threatened, stalked, gestures etc

d) social bullying: being ignored, having rumours spread about you, excluding someone etc

e) sexual bullying: unwanted touching or brushing against someone, picking on someone because of their sexual orientation etc

e) cyber bullying: insulting someone in chat rooms, sending cruel or threatening emails/text messages; using the web, chat rooms or mobile phones to spread rumours or information about someone etc

These are some of the ways people feel when they are bullied

like I deserved it como si me lo mereciera com si m’ho mereixés 13
like no one cares como si a nadie le importara com si a ningú li importés 14

Have you ever felt like this?

When I was bullied I ( always, sometimes, never) felt………

Are there any other feelings you can think of?

There are many videos against bullying in You Tube because bullying is a world wide problem. I have chosen three that I liked, but I’m sure you can find others.

I like the slogan of this simple animation.

There are also excellent websites that try to develop awareness  and make students take as stand against bullying. I have chosen tow websites from Australia, they are great. Investigate a bit, let’s see what you find.

We got excellent tips on how to fight bullies in an Austalian website. Some of the visuals that illustrate this post are from this web page too. http://www.bullyingnoway.com.au/chillout/bullying.shtml

Bullying has to do with not accepting that people are different.

What do you think?
