A WEBSITE for students to anonymously report any bullying they see or experience at school is available for Kingaroy State High School Students to

use.

Kingaroy High School P&C President Robert Postlethwaite said www.stymie.com.au was a website where witnesses or bystanders to bullying who feared they may be targeted for reporting the bullying could report it anonymously, as well as report cyber bullying.

"Students can make a notification on the site, it's something available for schools to take on and the P&C supports it,” he said.

"We encourage kids to feel safer and to use the website.”

The website allows bystanders to anonymously send notification to the school about someone who they believe is being bullied or harmed.

The website allows bystanders to upload evidence like screen shots of Facebook discussions, Snapchats, text messages or instant messages and an outline of the incident.

As bystanders are the largest group in the cycle of bullying, they are either witness to, encourage, take an active part in or instigate bullying behaviours.
