Later we will return to your school to deliver a second education session 'Cyberbullying'.

This session focuses on the bystander, rather than the "bully" or the "bullied". We aim to build skills like empathy, asking:

- What power do you have over the bystander?

- How can you respond?

- Why do bullies bully?

Each of our education session run for 60 minutes.
