Cyber-Bullying - Don't start it - Don't be a part of it
Cyber-bullying involves the use of information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated and hostile behaviour by an individual or group that is intended to harm others.
It differs from traditional schoolyard bullying because it often continues outside of school and school hours. It can be 24/7 and sometimes the bully is anonymous.
It's almost impossible to imagine life without the internet and mobile phones. With the touch of a button you can be connected to friends and family wherever they are. But these technologies can also be used in a negative way - causing hurt to others. Cyberbullying is a growing problem. Being the target of cyberbullying is not your fault and there are things you can do to put a stop to it.
