I. Introduction

Bullying is one of the major jobs that our pupils are confronting. In CIC’s Guidance Office and even in the Office of the Student’s Affairs ( OSA ) many of the pupils have reported different instances of intimidation. Some pupils do non travel in the said offices but alternatively they would prefer to relay such incidents to their instructors. Some go straight to the Principal’s Office along with their parents or defenders. One good attestation and observation. a high school pupil who feels superior tends to bully pupils in the lower old ages. This pupil asks some pupils from lower old ages to make his assignment. Sometimes he drives the student’s assurance down. The freshers and some pupils of different twelvemonth degrees are afraid of this pupil. In order for this pupil to win in his surveies or acquire high class he would coerce others to make his undertakings. Hence. he looks for weaker pupil that he may over power in order for him to be celebrated or be regarded as person influential.

The victim loses his focal point in school because of the menace brought by this bully. Sometimes he would non go to his categories and increase inclination of neglecting his academic topics. Such scenario has been a repeating phenomenon in the school environment. Numerous surveies have been made in the yesteryear as portion of a uninterrupted effort to understand human behaviour in its entireness.
