Abstract

Bullying is clearly a major issue for New Zealand schools. This article suggests an anti-bullying approach that can be used in schools to teach people about the dynamics of bullying and help them find solutions to bullying. It is based on the use of a hypothetical scenario, “On the Bus”, which focuses the attention of students on the dynamics of bullying, and encourages them to go through a reflective process of finding ways to stop this particular instance of bullying. It also encourages them to think about, and discuss, the outcomes of bullying for those involved, for the school, and for the community at large.
