Lanyon High School – bullying

Are your kids names associated with this facebook page? “Tuggers Goss

It was brought to my attention last night by my daughter who attends Lanyon High School that students from this school are inciting bullying and harassment. The school has been contacted and one of the bullies has since been dealt with.

This page is one of many pages that seem to be appearing on Facebook, the content is disgusting and disturbing. Parents need to take more accountability for their kids’ actions and monitor what is being written on social media pages.

So please if you or your kids have a Facebook account take a few minutes out of your busy days and check that it is not your kids who are involved and if they are be responsible and deal with them and explain the consequences bullying can have.

I sent a message to the person calling themselves Tuggers Goss and advised them that the page has been reported.

Bullying will never stop if we do not do anything about it.

[ED – It is about as bad as it can be. But really just like seeing schoolyard gossip written down]

UPDATE: The page is no more.

What’s Your opinion?

Ha, trolled. You know if there’s one thing I remember about the psyche of being a teenager, its that the only thing worse than the bullying is intervention by a parent. Can you get any more piss weak? I guess you’ll have to learn the hard way when your kids develop “bitch-itis” in their 20s. Maybe you should call your locally elected representative and make a complaint to the media! :O:O:O

I bet you watch Today Tonight, right? Enough said.

I just rang Lanyon High and made a complaint with the principle.

Right – because schoolteachers on $60,000/year should be made responsible for an internet site run by people who are on $100,000,000/year.

You’re right, we should allow kids to bully at will.

No, it will never stop, ever.

I don’t have children, but if I did, I would do everything in my power to stop some little bully bastard from ruining their lives.

I was never bullied in school but I certainly stood up for kids who were.

I have been bullied in the workplace and you know what? I made a formal complaint to the government and now my former boss is currently getting owned by the court.

As humans, we have the power to stop malicious behaviour. Don’t cower behind bullies.Stand up, look them in the eye and tell them to F*k OFF.

One of the problems with facebook/internet bullying is that there is no break for the kids. They get bullied at school, then come home and cop it there as well.

(yeah yeah, parents could remove the internet access etc to minimise it, but if you aren’t a cotton wool parent, the most you can do is try to talk with them about it and hope it stops).

I agree. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try and keep it to a minimum. I’m glad that when I was in highschool the bullies were too stupid to follow me into cyberspace. Not that they are any smarter or more witty now (if that FB page is anything to go by), but the interwebs are a lot easier to access.

Good work. My kids don’t go to this school, but I’d encourage parents to contact the school to let them know their concerns. As the OP says, it will never stop if people don’t make a stand. Making a phone or writing an email is 5 minutes out of your day.

Looks to me like “Tuggers Goss” is a girl, based on some of the comments made. Looks like the kind of crap you see written on toilet walls. Thank god I lived my teenage years in the 80s when the worst thing anyone could “post” was a letter.
Girls seem to be far more at risk (both as victims and perpetrators) with this kind of bullying. I fear for my daughter – if it’s like this now imagine how bad it will be in 2025 when she’s 15….

Hehehe.. Troll face

I had a look at the page. It’s pretty disgusting. There were some nasty things being said. I did notice that lot of the kids were defending each other against the anonymous bully.

There was a hate filled status directed at a “Sophie”, and a guy replied “oii even tho me and sophie dont get along anymore.. shes a nice girl… leave her alone”

It’s a gross page and most of the kids replying seem to realise that. I reported the page.I would advise you to print out the page and hand it into the principle of Lanyon. You have the names of several of the bullies, connected to their highly offensive comments. What more evidence could you ask for?

I know bullying culture is rife and you may get no justice, but it’s worth a try.

Good luck.

Hard proof the Facebook is the root of all evil. It’s the work of the Devil!

Reported to fb and the school, although I’m sure I’m not the first. Christ I don’t envy having kids in high school these days.
