Together we succeed! Lunca Secondary School, Pascani!


Pupils identified a problem often encountered in Romanian schools especially in our school. It’s about bullying. Children identified the causes and looked for solutions to reduce the effects of bullying on everyone affected by it: the aggressor, victim, witness. They thought to carry out an anti-bullying campaign through which to sensitise their class and school mates.

Explain what problem was chosen to be solved and why.

Pupils proposed to resolve a current issue - bullying. They consider that bullying is a big source of stress at school and a lot of children result in being traumatised and to skip classes because of this. Also, bullying is a phenomenon that affects all the people involved: aggressor, victim and witness.


What people are most affected by this problem? What is bothering them?

Most affected people are younger pupils, those with less financial possibilities, overweight pupils. These pupils are bothered by the fact that they are called names, jokes are being made about them by their colleagues and they are being marginalised.
