Abstract
School bullying is a type of bullying that occurs either inside or outside of school. Bullying can be physical, verbal, or emotional and is usually repeated over a period. In schools, bullying occurs in all areas. It can occur in nearly any part in or around the school building, though it more often occurs during school breaks, in hallways, bathrooms, on school buses and waiting for buses, classes that require group work and/or after school activities. While bullying can be destructive and persistent, it can also be subtle enough that teachers are not aware of it. Since bullying can lead to long-lasting psychological, emotional, and physical problems, it is essential for teachers to recognize the signs of bullying and how to combat it. Documentary research approach, which consists of reviewing, analysing and examining information, recorded media and texts was adopted for the study. The study found that bullying in school sometimes consists of a group of learners taking advantage of or isolating one learner in particular and gaining the loyalty of bystanders who want to avoid becoming the next victim. Bullying does not only impact the students, but also their family and classmates. Feeling powerless and confused, parents and other family members of bullying targets may experience depression, anxiety, and stress-related illnesses.
