|What can young people do?
|A message from Cameron Wyatt of Bannerman High School, Glasgow, who was a
member of the conference committee.
|"Remember that action against bullying is not just for you but
for every pupil in every school. You can make a difference. Don't simply rely on your
teacher. You too can help others by applying the ideas in this newsletter to your school's
situation. Bring these ideas to the attention of your head teacher, guidance staff or
anyone who will listen.
victims of bullying are often too scared to come forward. Their confidence has been
sapped. Their ability to speak out removed.
You still have a voice. And, hopefully, this
newsletter will remind you to use it".

have a large part to play to ensure that the bullies don't get away with their poisonous
behaviour. Don't let them wreck your education. Don't let them wreck anyone else's. Let's
all help each other to tackle this hard and head on.
I can tell you what we are doing to try and combat this scourge but I also
want your views. I want to hear about your experiences and ideas, about the solutions you
have for dealing with bullying and poor discipline. Whether it is bullying in the
classroom, bullying in the playground, bullying in the corridors, bullying on the way to
or from school. We are on the right road, but there is still a long way to go, and your
ideas can help.
I believe every school must be a safe school. Every child is
entitled to go through their school years without their experiences being blighted by
bullying. But these are complex issues. Solutions will be many and varied and they will
not be found overnight".
