Whilst pupils are continuously instructed not to bully, and given advice about what to do and who to tell if they are being bullied, it seems that there is much less advice for pupils who are neither the bully nor the bullied – the witnesses.
Yet, the witnesses are in perhaps the most powerful position of all when it comes to eradicating bullying, not least because their account of a situation is likely to be unbiased and can put ‘he said, she said, he did, she did’ situations to rest.
With this in mind, we are giving away a copy of one of the assembly stories from the volume, More Brilliant Stories for Assemblies, which touches on said theme.
In short: Ranpresh is terrified of ‘The Gang’ and gets attacked on the way home from school. Hannah is a witness but she is afraid to do anything about it. At last she finds the courage to be part of the solution rather than being part of the problem.
