Anti-bullying at your school

Schools are running anti-bullying campaign, such as creating an activity for children so they know what to do when they see someone getting bullied, or thinking about what words mean, for example: Discrimination, Racism, Sexism, Unfair treatment for disability and unfair treatment for religion or belief. There are school activities and lesson plans on the website where students can re-enact bullying to the other students and see if they will make a good choice and stop the bullying.
