Wicklow Bully Project

The purpose of this project is to gather resources which can help educate children and parents in how to address the subject of bullying in our schools and community in the Wicklow area. Our aim is to continually develop and improve our Anti Bullying Program so as we can all become activists for change. The incidence of bullying in our communities is increasing alarmingly. The more information and resources we gather the better we are able to combat this problem. Our information will be available to all members of this site and we encourage you to share that information with other parents/students.

What is Bullying? Well, bullying is when an individual or group does or says something to gain power or control over another. Bullying has many forms and is unfortunately or the increase in our society. Research carried out by the Anti Bullying Research and Resource Centre Trinity College Dublin reported that 30.2% of students reported that they had been bullied at school in the previous two months. The same report showed that approximately 25% of students had admitted to bullying others in the same period.
