Tully SHS tackles bullying with Stymie

31/03/2015
Stymie allows bystanders to send anonymous notifications to Tully SHS about someone who they believe is being bullied or harmed.
 
The notification interface allows bystanders to upload evidence like screen shots of Facebook discussions, Snapchats, text messages or instant message conversations and an outline of the incident(s). The messages are automatically forwarded to the appropriate adult here at Tully SHS. The first conversation we have will be with the student who is experiencing harm - they will know they are not alone.
 
Tully SHS is committed to harnessing the power of bystanders to change the 'culture of acceptance' of bullying in our community; a problem even the government admits is endemic amongst our youth. Stymie complements Tully State High School’s existing student well-being/pastoral care framework.
