Cyber bullying

Cyberbullying is the use of technology to deliberately and repeatedly bully someone. Cyberbullying can include:
  • abusive texts and emails
  • posting unkind messages or images
  • imitating others online
  • excluding others online
  • inappropriate image tagging
The St Patrick’s College Personal protection and Respect policy extends to online environments: 
  • St. Patrick’s College does not tolerate bullying or harassment in any form.
  • If you are being bullied don’t put up with it. Tell your parents, teachers or another responsible adult. Take action.
  • Everyone in our College community has a part to play in reducing and preventing bullying. Be an active bystander by speaking up and safely defending others, if you see or hear of bullying.
  • It is prohibited to send harassing, obscene and/or other threatening emails or electronic communications to another person.
  • Consequences for bullies include detention, mediation, withdrawal, parent interviews, suspension and review of enrolment (see the St Patrick’s College Protection and Respect policy).
