My second eldest daughter started at her school june 2012, yr 4 school population 600 from a small school of 253 students. She started off good until end aug 12′ when girls started to pick on her and they started to spread little rumors regarding sexual things with boys after school which were false. Then once this year started I hoped it would change as those girls went to high school but it didn’t. Things got worst at school for her, she was waited for in the girls toilets but 7 girls, got punched and her hair pulled out. A month later they waited for her and her 5yr old sister in kindy after school and kicked her legs which caused bruising and punched her in the face. Hrr sister was so scared she took off down the road. Im lucky nothing really bad happened that aftrrnoon to my babys. I have found that the school is not good at all with punishments and bullies. I have gone around to the main bullies house to confront the parents but nothing has changed. I feel my only option I have left is to changeher school again and hope for the best, I really worry on want this could be doing to her emotionally and I have noticed that she has alot more alone time in her room. Where do these bullies get from doing this to other kids???? The schools need education on how to handle bullies in the school system.

  • This is so terrible. I hope since you wrote that things have improved.


  • this is sad. as a mum of 5 yr old girl, i cant even imagine it. i hope you will find a solution soon.


  • By now she is probably wanting to change schools. Let her know its not running away but protecting herself. Also report it to higher authorities.


  • I would be collecting as much proof, facts and witnesses as you can and taking it to the police for an AVO or similar if the principal won’t intervene. Perhaps going to the media could help if the principal and police won’t but of course carefully so there are no further repercussions. In my experience you would have to move quite a distance for the rumours not to follow. A good self defense class might benefit your daughter and certainly get a her a professional to talk to about this horrible situation. Wishing you both all the best xoxo.


  • As well as approaching the principal I would send a letter to the principal and let them know that if no action is taken in relation to bullying in the school that you will make an official complaint to the Education Department. By putting it in writing when you contact the Education Department you can clearly indicate when the issues were raised and also provide them with the letter you sent to the principal.


  • This is terribly hard to deal with as all we want is to protect our babies. I would approach the principal of the school if you haven’t already or if so approach him/her again saying it’s continuing, I have heard the police can be involved. I wish you the best, perhaps you can call the police with your concerns.
