  Peer-mediators at school are a good idea
Updated 23 June 2004, 08.40
Bullying is still a problem
Bullying is a major problem in some schools and children often have no-one to talk to about it.

But in her report Mandy tells us of the way her school is dealing with bullying.

"In my opinion I think there isn't enough being done to prevent bullying.

Some teachers are not taking notice of the issue, while children are left to suffer without any help.

No way out

I realised the seriousness of this issue when I heard some children who have been bullied think about taking their own lives.

Deaths at a young age should not happen, since they have their whole lives ahead of them.

Better than adults

When my school decided to train Year 10s and 11s to become peer-mediators I was pleased.

I felt this was a very good idea as it is easier to talk to other students than adults.

This idea has been successful for my school, and hopefully other schools have the same system."

Mandy, 13, London
