    I was bullied in senior infants and it lasted till 6th cl. I didn’t understand until 5th cl. I told teachers through this period of time. He would always kick me in the shins and push me. He would also give me an odd dirty look. I didn’t like it. So one day in 6th cl we were out playing football with the school at lunch like usual, our coach would come out and we would do a few drills and have a match after. One day he grabbed me off the ball around the neck with my hands behind my head and swung me to the muddy wet ground. I told the coach but he said he would talk to him after training after that he did it again. Again off the ball when ody was looking. The coach said nothing. So I went in to the cl crying and told the teacher who is the principle what happened and he said where is he. he took us into the staff room to talk about it. He asked him was he doing the allegations against him and he said no it was a bit of craic. He asked me how this so called craic made me feel. I said I was never happy at school I went into school everyday fearful of him. The teacher stopped it for 1 day and it started again I was really annoyed when he kicked me. I grabbed him at the scruff off his neck and said if you don’t leave me alone I will punch you and he never bothered me since. For once in my life I was happy at school.
    I wonder what to do about the school they were aware of it and didn’t do anything about. 8yrs of my life was bad.
    Please help me.

    Hi sandman92, I’m glad to hear that the bullying has stopped for you. Confronting a bully like that physically is not something you should try and do as sometimes it can make things worse. If you are worried that your school aren’t doing enough you should talk to a parent about it and have them write to the school or board of management to try and investigate and help resolve any future events. If you go to the help page on the website there are tips for what a victim and parents of a victim can do to report bullying in school.

    Hi Sandman, you did the right thing by contacting your parents. The school will have completed recording doents as part of their normal procedure. Raising awareness about bullying incidents is important and teaching others how to prevent and support others who may be effected. If you wanted to talk to your current schools anti bullying coordinator you could raise awareness in your own school. If you wanted more specific support with this you can email abc.dcu@dcu.ie and we can send you some more information you can use. smiley
