ENTHUSIATIC PIONEERS

Understanding the problem is the first step in expanding our society’s views and behaviour to move beyond bullying.

Our peer to peer action reseach draws attention to issues from a young persons perspective to highlight every individual’s role in creating acceptance and respect to make bullying a thing of the past.

We get to be involved at every step and then take the information we collect and do something about the issues and needs that come up.

I wanted to run some focus groups to find out if boys had different experiences and opinions about bullying.

OUR RESEARCH INTO BULLYING

Bullying & Life Online

Biannual Survey & Report

Since 2013, we have been doing bi annual surveys across the Central Otago region to find out more about the experiences and perceptions about bullying from other young people.

We also make our survey available to other schools as a baseline to collect their own data and use this to work out what the issues are in their schools.
