Voice 1
Welcome to IIBS News.

Voice 2
And I am _____________. Spotlight uses a special English method of
broadcasting. It is easier for people to understand, no matter where in the
world they live.

Voice 1
Nurani R is 14 years old. She is a student in Cikarang. But for a long time,
Nurani did not want to go school. In fact, she feared going to school. She
told the IIBS News,

Voice 3 (Nurani R)
"Students treated me very badly almost every day… I used to go to school
thinking: what is going to happen to me today? Is someone going to
physically hurt me? Will someone shout at me or throw something at me?”

Voice 2
Nurani was afraid because students at her school were bullying her. And
Nurani is not alone. Many children around the world experience bullying.
Today’s Spotlight program is about bullying in schools.

Voice 1
Bullying is not a new problem. However, knowledge about bullying is
growing. Health Behaviour In School-Aged Children or HBSC is a group of
researchers from around the world. They define bullying as “the use of
power and forceful or violent behaviour to cause suffering or to control
another person.

Voice 2
In 2009, HBSC published the results of a large research study. Their
researchers observed that bullying is not limited to a particular culture or
place. Around the world, they found that 1 in every 4 students was involved
in bullying - either as a bully or the victim of a bully.

Voice 1
Learning more about bullying is important because bullying can be very
dangerous. Children who are bullied can suffer both physical and
emotional harm. Nurani, from the beginning of the program, told the BBC
how bullying affected her,

Voice 3
"I went from being a happy girl who loved going to school and learning, to
someone that did not care about anything. I was so depressed… I just
wanted to go to sleep to end each day. There was nothing to look forward
to. I did not even enjoy coming home since I would just have to go to school
the next day."

Bullying scene
Group of the girls are having conversation and seems talking about Nurani,
they have different seat, Nurani is sitting alone in her seat expressing
unhappy while the girl having conversation like gossiping and stare at her.

Teacher is coming, students go back to their seats.

Teacher : dear students, school will have choir competition and school
hope that all of you will be part.

Nurani : teacher! (raise her hand) so I may be part of this


Student 1 : you???? You can even talk properly and wanna sing! It must
be a joke

Class : (laughing at the jokes)

Teacher : Be humble, please!, sure you can dear!

Student 1 : let’s see if she can do it.

Class : (laughing) don’t cry baby!

Teacher : stop! Or I will dismiss this class.

Voice 2
Sadly, the effects of bullying can be even worse than Nurani’s
experience. In the summer of 2012, a tragic story spread around the
world. News organizations reported the death of a 13 year old boy in Otsu,
Japan. For eight months students bullied this boy. They hit him. They
kicked him. They forced him to eat dead insects. They tied his legs and
arms together.

Voice 1
They even forced him to act like he was killing himself. Then one day, the
young boy did kill himself. And his father believes that the severe bullying
caused him to end his life.
This tragic story shocked the young boy’s family, the country of Japan and
the world. After his son’s death, the young boy’s father wrote,

Voice 4 (victim’s father)

“I want bullying to disappear from every school in Japan. I want schools
to become a safe place again.”

Voice 2
Parents, teachers and schools all over the world want the same thing. And
many schools have already begun to take action. These schools are creating
anti-bullying programs. Anti-bullying programs have two purposes. First,
they teach and inform students about bullying. They do this by developing
positive group behaviour, social skills, and communication.

Voice 1
The second purpose of anti-bullying programs is to support teachers and
other school workers. The programs teach adults how to identify bullying.
They also give them ideas for managing different cases of bullying. This
permits the teacher to consider the needs of the individual students

Voice 2

Our reporter has done interviewing some parents and communities about

Reporter : what do you think about bullying?

Person 1 : it has to stop, it’s danger for the victim or even the bully

Reporter : why, it could be that way?

Person 2 : because, the victim can be very hard to face the daily basis
and it makes the victim life in bad situation every day.

Person 1 : the bully can be a criminal I suppose, it’s a chance, right!

Person 3 : I was the bullying victim, when back then I was in school, "I
had lost all of my confidence. I no longer believed in myself. But now my
confidence is slowly building back up.” I am lucky I got help shortly.

Person 1 : oh dear!!! It’s terrible.

Person 3 : yeah, it is

Person 2 : glad you got the right hands to help.

Reporter : thank you for the time

This is my report about the bullying and society, I am Nina/Nino, we go

back to the studio.

Voice 1
Thank you Nina/Nino.

Bullying can be so bad.

Voice 2
True, we have to stop it, all of us.

Voice 2
Bullying can have very tragic effects. People around the world hope to rid
schools of bullying. And programs like KiVa can help start this process.

Voice 1

However, even when bullying happens, there is still hope. When people
identify bullying and take action, things can change. And students who are
bullied can recover from their experiences with help.

Voice 2
Do you remember Nurani from the beginning of the program? Her school
did not have a plan to prevent bullying. But her mother recognized the
problem and took action. Today, Nurani attends a new school. She no
longer experiences bullying. And she is starting to recover. Nurani told
the IIBS news.

Voice 1
We hope you can join us again for the next Spotlight program. Goodbye.
