Students take a stand against cyber bullying

SHARE

Waitaki Girls’ High School is taking a proactive approach to an online application, which has been linked to cyber-bullying.

School leaders Maddie Blackler (head girl), Olivia Hay (deputy head girl), Rebekah Cochrane (head boarder) and Sophie Dalgleish-Andrews (board of trustees student representative) are raising awareness of the issue at their school, after witnessing first-hand, the nasty comments that can come out of the app.

Ask.fm is a social networking application, which allows people to anonymously ask questions on people’s profiles or comment.

”We noticed a lot of girls within our school were being bullied,” said Olivia.
