Cyber Bullying

Cyberbullying from Clydebank High School on Vimeo.

CyberBulling is defined as a young person tormenting, threatening, harassing, or embarrassing another young person using the Internet or other technologies, like mobile phones. By using technology like mobiles or the internet, this type of bullying can affect someone not just at school, but at home as well. This type of bullying is 24 hours as it takes place in the virtual world and can make someone feel upset or threatened in their own home.

It can sometimes be hard to identify who the cyberbully is because they could block their number or post things on a website anonymously. The nature of this type of bullying means it can have a large audience.

Cyber bulling can be very damaging and can lead to anxiety, depression, and even suicide.

Also, once things are circulated on the Internet, they may never disappear, resurfacing at later times to renew the pain of cyber bullying.

There have been a number of high profile cases over the last few years where young victims have taken their own lives because of vicious online taunting. According to studies one in four children have been a victim of cyber bullying.

We shouldn't have to deal with bulling alone. Young people should talk to parents, carers or teacher if they are getting bullied.

This year at Clydebank High school some of the pupils who study German have been involved in making a friendship with a pupil from Germany. The pupils are from Sögle in North West Germany, they go to Hümmling-Gymnasium. It all started off back in December 2012, when an email was sent from a teacher in Germany to Mr Moore, one of the teachers involved. After Mr Moore got talking to the German teacher it was decided that the pupils were going to become pen pals.

All the pupils are enjoying this fantastic experience as they are both becoming more enthusiastic about the language and are forming new friendships. Everyone is looking forward to their visit in June and hoping it is the first of many.
