Moseley Park School
"We have chosen to tackle the problem of Bullying. Over 3.2 million pupils are victims of bullying each year. Around 160,000 teenagers skip school every day because of it, this would decrease the education of 100,000+ students over their life. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year. Bullying will also affect the family and friends of the victim causing potential depression and self-harm. Also this can affect the victim’s development as, if they are bullied at school they might not pay attention to work from the fear of getting bullied"
"Our big idea is to stop bullying through having a website, a website which will have a game, which is VR compatible, that you start as a character being bullied and you make its choices that will choose your fate. We also will have a forum where you can get advice from. This is a product that we hope stops bullying once and for all. Also there is an Agony Aunt and Understanding Uncle that can support you every step of the way. This is available to all mobile phone and computer/laptop users."
"This website will be aimed at anybody who is a victim of bullying, and it has a chance of changing the way that bullies think. And if victims are changed by this project it may change their lives and the people around them such as family and friends. It can also benefit the culprit’s lives too, as they will realize that what they are doing is wrong. This can affect their lives for the better, as they will no longer be the hurtful bully, they will be the caring buddy."
