It is Sophia's first day at her new school. She is extremely anxious about meeting new people.
A few days go by and she is still finding it hard to make new friends. The kids in her class are not very friendly. They don’t seem to make Sophia feel welcome making her really sad.
We don't want you on our team Sophia! Go back where you came from!
Sophia decides to join the girls basketball team as a few girls in her class play in the school team. She has never played before but is willing to give it a go to make some friends.
At basketball training everyone introduces themselves in a circle.Three girls from her class Amber, Penny and Melissa are also in the team.They start to pass the ball around, but they won’t pass it to Sophia. Amber tries to include Sophia but Melissa glares at her and so she backs away.
Uhh.. I'm Sophia
The next day Sophia bumps into Melissa from her footy team. Melissa starts to taunt her.“We don’t want you on our team!” “We are all good players. If we lose it will be your fault.” “Why don’t you go back where you came from!”
Sophia doesn’t know what to do or who to turn to. She is so shocked by the verbal abuse and begins to cry, running to the girl’s toilets.
