HERE IS A TRUE BULLY STORY
It may be useful for an assembly.
Norma Jean was not popular.
Jenny was one of the most popular girls in the class.
Norma Jean had been away and I over heard Jenny asking where she had been.
(I was on playground duty.)
She told how she had been to her Gran’s and Jenny continued to ask what she had done, and if she had had a nice time.
Norma Jean was clearly pleased to be asked details by this popular child.
“Good – you should have stayed there.” – shot Jenny.
I was horrified to see how she had picked her out, built her up, and shot her down in just a few sentences.
Popular and Bully can go Hand in Hand!
It was the only time I have actually caught verbal bullying in action!
Please note that the very best thing about not teaching is NOT DOING PLAYGROUND DUTY!!!
“OH, AND MONDAY MORNINGS”
