Kate, you can help Sally too! You could tell her you know she is being bullied and remind her that she doesn't deserve it.
You could help Sally by making sure she isn't alone in the playground. Maybe invite Sally to sit with you at lunchtime and spend time with her.
Tell Sally to talk to an adult that she can trust about the bullying.
Later that afternoon in the classroom...
Miss, I need to talk to you please. There is something worrying me and I'm losing sleep and I can't concentrate in class.
Sure, I've noticed you haven't been yourself lately. How can I help?
The next day, Bob the Bully is back...
You are so annoying all the time and you have no friends.
Stop! I don't like it. I'm leaving.
Would you like to come and sit with me at lunch?
I know Bob is bullying you and you definitely don't deserve it. Have you talked to a teacher about it?
Yes, I have talked to the teacher.
Bob, I would like to talk to you about the right way to speak to people at school.
Bye from your friendly neighbourhood Bully Busting Fairy!
Sally and Kate did such a great job at handling that bullying situation! Sometimes, bullying is not that easy to solve and kids can feel helpless. If you feel that way, remember keep asking adults for help until you find it - don't give up!
There is even a number you can ring for help. Simply call the Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800.
