When school is not cool....

The school year has started again. For some, this means friends and fun times, for others, it spells disaster...If you are being bullied, don't suffer alone because you are not alone. Confide in your parent(s), Guardian or Teacher(s).If you don't have anyone to turn to, e-mail me (email@youarenotalonedirectory.co.uk ) with your name, age, date of birth, school and contact number and I will make sure you are supported.
