“Stop the hate – deactivate” was the message at Waitaki Girls’ High School’s stand against cyber bullying on Friday.
The school is taking a proactive approach to social networking site Ask.fm, which allows people to anonymously post comments and questions.
The site has been linked to cyber-bullying and deputy head girl Olivia Hay said it has got out of hand.
”Girls have been coming up to us, telling us they have deactivated their sites,” she said.
At lunchtime on Friday, students placed their finger print and signature on a banner, to pledge against using the site.
School guidance councillor Jenny Corlet said it was great to see girls stand up and say they wouldn’t get involved with the site.
