Bullying is when someone is being hurt either by
words or actions on purpose, usually more than
once, feels bad because of it, and has a hard time
stopping what is happening to them.
Bullying can happen anywhere. It can occur in
your neighborhood, while going to school, at school,
and while on-line. Other type of bullying can be
cyber bullying where you use technology to hurt
others feelings or destroy their dignity.
Here in the Philippines
includes any physical contact that would hurt
or injure a person like hitting, kicking,
punching, etc. Taking something that belongs
to someone else and destroying it would also
be considered a type of physical bullying. For
example, if someone was walking down the
street and someone came up to them and
shoved them to the ground, that would be
physical bullying. In elementary and middle
schools, 30.5% of all bullying is physical.
is name-calling, making offensive remarks, or joking
about a person's religion, gender, ethnicity,
socioeconomic status, or the way they look. For
example, if there was a group of kids who made fun
of another kid because he couldn't run as fast as
everyone else, it would be an example of verbal
bullying. 46.5% of all bullying in schools is the
verbal type. Verbal aggression is when a bully teases
someone. It can also include a bully making verbal
threats of violence or aggression against someone's
personal property
includes spreading rumors or stories about
someone, telling others about something that was
told to you in private, and excluding others from
groups. An example would be if you started a
rumor that a boy in your class likes playing with
dolls, and if the reason that you made up the
story was because you thought it was funny. This
would be indirect bullying. Indirect bullying
accounts for 18.5% of all bullying.
is when a bully excludes someone
from a group on purpose. It also
includes a bully spreading rumors,
and also making fun of someone by
pointing out their differences.
is when a bully threatens someone
else and frightens that person
enough to make him or her do what
the bully wants.
is done by sending messages, pictures, or information
using electronic media, computers (email & instant
messages), or cell phones (text messaging & voicemail).
For instance, if you sent a picture of a snake in an
email to a person because you know that they are
afraid of snakes, that would be an example of
cyberbullying. According to a survey done in 2003 only
4% of bullying is listed as "other types"
and this would include cyberbullying. Even though this
number seems small, the growth of this type of bullying
is going up fast because of the spread of technology
around the world.

Based on the recommendations contained in the report,
the government will immediately take the following
• update policies and procedures in the education sector
to ensure consistency in the prevention, rapid response
and intervention in bullying incidents;
• develop an anonymous online reporting tool for the
reporting of bullying incidents;
• assess the implications for Saskatchewan of upcoming
federal cyberbullying legislation;
• support students to develop appropriate and
responsible online behaviour;

and resources for students, families and educators.
1. There should be classroom discussions about the motivation and
effects of bullying to sensitize students and promote self-awareness.
2. Counseling should be available to kids who are bullied, for the
bullies and for those who help the bullies. When needed, these
children should be referred to outside therapists for on-going help.
3. There should be school-wide events that focus the student body on
bullying, for instance, “Bullying Awareness Tuesdays.” There could
be activities in each class such as designing slogans to put on the
walls such as: “It's wrong to bully others” or “It's wrong to go along
with a bully.” A child who reports bullying should be rewarded.
4. Take an anti-bullying pledge. Print out our pledge to stand up
against bullying
5. Be a positive role model and teach your child good social behavior
from an early age.
6. Work with the bully. Don’t forget that the bully has issues to deal
with as well and also needs help from adults. Bullies often engage in
bullying behaviors out of a lack of empathy and trust, or as a result
of issues at home.
Role of Anti-Bullying Legislation in Filipino Schools
•Anti-bullying legislation has helped promote bullying
awareness among Filipino society. This is a major step in
putting a stop to bullying and protecting young people in the
country. The Anti-bullying Act of 2013 also helped to
promote the development of Child Protection Committees in
schools, a vital part of the DepEd’s Child Protection Policy
(CPP) to keep young students safe in their learning
•School CPCs are comprised of six members to include the
school’s principal who acts as chairperson, a guidance
counselor, a teacher representative as chosen from the
school’s faculty club, a student representative selected by the
school’s Supreme Student Council and a representative from
the local community, preferably a barangay (district) council
•Under the Anti-Bullying Act, all schools in the Philippines, both public
and private, are required to put no-bullying policies in place to handle
issues with this abusive behavior on school grounds. No-bullying policies
serve various purposes. First, they provide teachers and staff with a means
of identifying and dealing with bullying behavior in school. Bullies know
their abusive actions will not be tolerated and that there will be
consequences for their behavior. Next, bullying policies encourage students
to report bullying behavior knowing that they can count on teachers and
staff to provide the help and support they need.
•According to Luistro, “… 93 school divisions in seven regions have their
respective pool of trainers, who are expected to roll out and to capacitate
school personnel in handling child abuse and bullying cases.”
•In addition to peer bullying, some students suffer from bullying at the
hands of teachers who embarrass or demean them in front of their class.
Students who perform poorly, for example, may be chastened or insulted
before their peers. No-bullying policies include not tolerating bullying from
teachers in Filipino schools. Teachers who humiliate students in public or
private face the risk of administrative sanctions by their school as per the
DepEd’s Child Protection Policy.
•Part of the responsibility of the DepEd is to educate
school principals, teachers and staff about child protective
policies by conducting special forums, seminars and
consultations. Parents, teachers and other adults in the
community are encouraged to report school bullying
incidences to a school’s CPC so they can instigate an
investigation and act on victims’ behalf.
•The Philippines’ Anti-Bullying Law of 2013 makes schools
responsible for reporting criminal bullying behavior to
local police for prosecution. If schools believe perpetrators
should be charged for criminal activity under the
country’s Revised Penal Code, they are obligated to notify
police and the bully’s parents/guardians so disciplinary
action can be taken.

•People who are bullied and bullies are
being given attention.
•It can prevent people from having
depression, if they have someone to talk
•It teach them not to bully other person
like judging and discriminating them.
