Jeremy spoken in class today 💔.
Every time I drop my son at school I see the sign, “Stand up to bullying” on his classroom door.
School bullying is a serious problem everywhere, Australia is not an exception. Approximately one student in five is bullied at school every few weeks. It can be so devastating for children’s confidence and self esteem. And now they say sticks and stones and Mobile phones. Everyday hundreds of young Aussies are being bullied online, some suffering so much trauma they take their lives.
Earlier this year we mourned the loss of 14-year old Amy “Dolly” Everett from NT.
Bullying deserves zero tolerance. Let’s stop it. Talk to your friends. Be kind. Parents keep an eye out, pay attention to your kids, don’t let them build their own reality.
JEREMY the song was inspired by a true story in 1991 - a 15 year old, introverted Jeremy Delle shot himself in front of his English at Richardson High School in Texas.
Words scar. Rumours destroy. Bullies kill.
