Cyber Bullying News in Straits Times today

1 in 4 secondary students 'admits to cyber bullying'
Survey also finds that 1 in 5 primary school pupils has been bullied online

A posed photograph of a victim of cyber-bullying. One in four secondary school students have admitted to bullying their peers online in the past year, according to a poll. -- PHOTO: ST FILE  

One in four secondary school students admitted that they have bullied their peers online within the past year, a poll has found, while one in three said they have been victims of cyber bullying.
These ranged from spreading rumours or vicious remarks about a person on social networks, to "defacing" a person's picture and then circulating it online.
One in five primary school children, too, reported being "cyber bullied".
The survey of 3,000 secondary school students and 1,900 primary pupils was done by Touch Cyber Wellness, the main agency that runs online safety talks in schools here.
The data on the prevalence of cyber bullying in Singapore was collected over the last year after a 2012 Microsoft study found that Singapore had the second highest rate - 58 per cent - of online bullying worldwide, after China. The two countries were the only two of the 25 surveyed where bullying online was more pervasive than in the real world.
Counsellors said the number of cyber bullies among young people looks set to grow further.
"There will be more bullies because cyber bullying has become more common over the years and such social behaviour is being normalised," said Ms Esther Ng, president of volunteer group Coalition Against Bullying for Children and Youth (Cabcy).
In 2006, Cabcy did a study which found that one in four primary and secondary school students suffered online bullying at least once in their lives.
The rising number of online bullies is worrying, said Mr Chong Ee Jay, assistant manager of Touch Cyber Wellness, because its victims may suffer from consequences that are potentially more serious than face-to-face bullying.
"On the Internet, the taunting and rumours can be relentless over 24 hours and this information can even come back to haunt one in future," he said.
"The potential audience is much wider and so the shame or emotional trauma suffered can be more intense than actual physical injuries," he added.
Indeed, a study on the consequences of bullying on Singaporean youth, published last February in the International Criminal Justice Review, had found a "significant link between bullying victimisation and school truancy and suicidal thoughts".
It is not only the victims who suffer. A 2007 study done in the United States found that teens who have been bullied and the bullies themselves are almost twice as likely to have attempted suicide than those who have not been.
So why do these teens become cyber bullies when it does not pay?
Observers think the less-developed impulse control and social skills of the young may play a part when they navigate cyberspace.
"They are egged on by their peers and act out in the heat of the moment," said Mr Chong.
Ms Ng said some children do not realise the reach and impact that their words can have online.
"The cloak of anonymity can also change the mildest of people into terrible bullies because they feel emboldened and powerful," she added.
Others ironically become bullies after being victims of cyber bullying. Mr Chong said he once came across a group of primary school girls who used to ignore the online flaming done to them by another group. But the attacks became worse over time and they decided to retaliate and humiliate the other group by altering their pictures and posting them online.
Counsellors said the new harassment law passed in Parliament this year is an important step in deterring such cases of cyber harassment. Those who are the targets of false and malicious online content can similarly get orders requiring the content to be taken down and for correction notifications to be published in their place. Victims can also sue perpetrators for civil damages.
Apart from resorting to legal recourse, Touch hopes parents and educators will keep up with the latest trends so as to better guide their charges. Together with SingTel, it launched the first cyber wellness app here last week for parents to get tips from experts.
For Ms Ng, it is equally important to rope in witnesses of online bullying to speak up against such behaviour. Cabcy is currently doing a study with about 1,000 tertiary students to find out why bystanders do not come forward to help the victims.
"For every kid that is bullied online, there are at least two or three more who would have seen it and could have done something," she said.
"We need more positive voices to intervene and set the norm."

7 Must-Read Life Lessons from Benjamin Franklin

Dear S102,

I would like to share this article with all of you. Have a meaningful weekend.

Regards,
Audrey

  1. Waste Not

    "Do not squander time for that is the stuff life is made of."
    Your time is your life. If you waste your time, you are wasting your life. I’ve never met a successful person who didn’t value their time, and I’ve never met an unsuccessful person who did.

    Don’t let other people waste your time either, why is it when someone wants to “kill an hour,” they want to kill your hour as well? Protect your time, it can never be replaced, it can never be replenished, your time is your life.

  2. Learn

    "Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn."
    Benjamin Franklin said, “He that won't be counseled can't be helped.” Always be open to learning. You can learn from anyone, and from any situation. You can learn from the fool as well as the genius. Bruce Lee said, “A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.”

  3. Make Mistakes

    "Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out."
    Success comes from doing things “right,” and doing things right is usually the result of first doing things wrong. You are certain to make mistakes; the path to success is lined with mistakes and failures, just keep moving. Successful people make a lot of mistakes, but they don’t quit, they keep moving until they arrive to their goal.

  4. Energy and Persistence

    "Energy and persistence conquer all things."
    To have energy and persistence you must have passion, there must be an inner vision that drives you to achieve your goal.

    If you don’t have a clear picture of where you’re going, then you don’t have the energy or persistence to make any noteworthy progress. You must be driven by a picture that is bigger than your current reality.

  5. Prepare

    "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."
    It’s better to not have an opportunity and be prepared, than to have an opportunity and not be prepared. Success loves preparation, are you prepared?

    If the perfect opportunity presented itself, would you be ready for it? Spend your days preparing for success, so when your opportunity comes, you will be ready.

  6. Be Diligent
    "Diligence is the mother of good luck."

    Solomon wrote, the diligent shall be made rich. If you want to be lucky, be diligent, the more diligent you are, the luckier you will be. Everyone has the ability to increase their luck seven fold by becoming more diligent.

    Create the habit of being diligent in all you do, and you will be surprised at how lucky you become.

  7. Make an Impression

    "Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."
    Benjamin Franklin said, “Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.” I hope you’re not dead, I hope you haven’t achieved all that you’re going to achieve; I hope your best days are in front of you. I think they are.

Youth Day Celebration (Friday)

2014 Youth Day Celebrations @ SST - “Dress and Pledge”
Date: 4 July 2014

Youth Day is a special day celebrated by many countries in the world to appreciate the youths’ achievement in each country. It is also celebrated to promote the contribution of young people to their countries’ development. In Singapore, Youth Day is celebrated on first Sunday of July every year. This year we will celebrate Youth Day in Singapore on 6 July 2014 (Sunday).

Theme
In SST, we will celebrate Youth Day on 4 July 2014(Friday). The theme for the day is “Dress and Pledge”. Through the events planned, we hope to raise awareness about less fortunate youths, celebrate the different talents of the youths in SST and to empower SST students to contribute to the community.photo1.jpg

Momento
Each student will be given a memento as part of the celebrations. The memento is a paper clip as shown on the right.

Attire
Students are encouraged to come dressed in their home clothes or as Cosplay characters. Attire should still adhere to the fundamental philosophy of SST Student Code of Conduct. Hence, revealing clothes and clothes with objectionable prints should not be worn. Students are required to wear covered shoes. Students who do not wish to come in home clothes or Cosplay costumes can still choose to come in full school uniform.

While students have fun dressing up and celebrating, they will also take time out to consider the less fortunate. The day will begin the day with a Youth Day Appeal where students and staff members are encouraged to contribute by way of monetary donations. Every amount contributed is important and all donations will be matched $1-to-$1 by the Government under the Care & Share Movement.

Photo-Booth Fund Raising Event
PSB has initiated a Photo-booth fund raising event to support the donation drive for Community Chest. Photo Booths will be set up during the Lower Secondary and Upper Secondary recesses where students can take photographs with their friends and staff members. The photo booth, which will be setup in the Atrium is equipped with props and a backdrop. There will also be 2 photographers moving around in the canteen to take photos. The cost price of each polaroid is $1.30. Students are encouraged to pay more than the $1.30 for a worthy cause as all the money earned will be donated to the Community Chest.

Inter-House Cosplay Challenge and SST Talent Show Case
To wrap up the celebrations for the day, there will be an Inter-House Cosplay Challenge as well as the SST Talent Show Case during assembly.

Here is a quick summary of the programme for the day.
