  3. 3. Bullying in Australian schoolsBully: Some one who often intimidate smaller and younger people formany reasons such as: self satisfaction, anger, point of views such asreligion or race, also goes as far as personality and looks.Bullies normally act in a manner which is threatening to people but mightnot go further than words. He/She will normally use friends which are“popular” to help them isolate the person and make them feel self concious. For any number of reasons.Bullying often occurs through the life of teenagers due to their social lifebeing in a school 6 hours a day and going through a time in their life tomake friends and people they trust but it can occur to staff as well.Bullying often has to do with how the person was raised from a young age.They could have been too rough and thought people just didn’t like theway they were, In a situation like this they tend to become more aggressiveand if people like the bully for his threatening looks and reputation theyhang out with him encouraging him to continue his work or make himthink its because he’s a bully that he has friends this is normally negativeencouragements. There are plenty of anti bullying programs in schoolswere teachers talk to the students parents and find out why they are actingweird or aggressive towards other kids. There are also websites which areable to help kids through the government which can help, the child if theyare going through “parental” issues such as this website is a direct link to awebsite which can help towards problems. There are also government linesto call which are advertised on TV such as 1800 55 1800 easy numbers tofollow so you can get help for your family or a bully. 1By Bradey MurphyTask 2

  8. 8. SummaryMy understanding of this topic before I researched it was that bullyinghappens to everyone and it will always work like this. But I havediscovered that there are many help websites and phone lines supported bythe government and parents to help people through these tough times intheir life. I have also realised the many different strategies one can use inorder to stop the bully from spreading and to stop the bully from getting toyou. I have also learned about the different ways to be bullied Examples:cyber bullying, verbal bullying, physical and many more after reading thisI felt slightly disappointed that people will bully in any way or any wherethey can.My Idea that bullying happens to every one and that it will go awayeventually has changed I believe it should be stopped in order for kids tokeep learning. Bullying can also affect peoples thoughts about other peopleforever and it encourages the victims to hold grudges which the Bible tellsus NOT to do. Matthew 6:14-15This topic is about how the bullying in Australia can affect more than justthe one person it is a social issue that can affect their family as well, If itgets to extreme example: contemplating suicide. Which will drasticallyaffect the family and a lot more of the other kids within the school.This topic is valuable to me because it shows me how bullying hurt me andhow it has affected more and more people every day.I believe this issue has partially been dealt with in Australian societybecause it has a lot of parents and There are a lot of parents behind thisissue supporting it in every possible way they know how. The schools haveEnglish 1By Bradey MurphyTask 2
  9. 9. been talked to by government programs and if the kids are having anyissues there are help lines in which they can use to help the situation to bedealt with. Feature articleTMZ spoke with a family member of one of the kids ... who told us thebully was suspended for twenty-one days following the incident and thekid being bullied was suspended for 4 -- since he was violent as well.Were also told the kid on the receiving end of the vicious body slam didnot suffer any serious injuries ... despite the fact he came off the groundwith a severe limp.Sources tell us the kid who was being bullied is handling the mediaattention surprisingly well -- and is "very happy" hes received so muchsupport.A member of the family was talked to and it was received he got 21 dayssuspension and the bullied child got 4 days to prove no tolerance towardsviolence.This case was recently in the media and it relates to bullying because theboy being bullied fought back and was willing to defend himself but withevery action comes a consistence. Because he was still suspended even if itwas all the bullies fault, He should have resorted to getting the authoritiesinvolved. And not taken this situation into his own hands.English 1By Bradey MurphyTask 2
  10. 10. The Experience of Ethnic Migration Within Australia.Immigrant: a person who changes country in order to stay there forever.The problem with immigration in Australia is that people find it difficult toget in due to many reasons.Examples:What are your plans for being in Australia?What is the reason for moving from your last country?How will you provide for yourself?What qualifications do you have?These have varied from the olden days where people could just come herein boats and people wouldn’t ask questions unless they were crime relatedof course. People cant come over for simple reasons like a fresh start. Dueto criminal records and other past experiences.There are also more problems when you enter the new cultures in thepresent time as well, examples: quarantine, transport ect.Australian Migration program was originally for defence purposes as the19650s and 60s came around it was for the Australian industries to buildup.English 1By Bradey MurphyTask 2

  14. 14. In addition to our rich Indigenous cultures, Australia is a nation built on themigrant experience and consequently is one of the most diverse countriesin the world. In this, the United Nations declared International Year for theRapprochement of Cultures, Australian society is a microcosm of theentire world and faces a similar challenge, to live harmoniously, withrespect and cooperation regardless of culture, language or religion.Today, there are approximately 22 million Australians, speaking almost400 languages, including Indigenous languages (End note 1), identifyingwith more than 270 ancestries and observing a wide variety of cultural andreligious traditions. Australia remains a socially stable country, not despiteits cultural diversity, but because of the acceptance of it and the firm beliefthat diversity is one of the country’s enduring strengthsWe are a country who formed an idea to the world that we accept peoplefor any culture race and religion as long as you agree to our terms andconditions. Making us look like a rich respectable nation on languages andpeace. Giving more people the idea to get away from their own countryand join the “land of the free”. But freedom isn’t free.English 1By Bradey MurphyTask 2

  17. 17. SummaryBefore I researched this topic I believed that getting into Australia was aeasy but there are more qualifications than expected example: if there aretoo many cooks in the country doing that course then you will have to findsomething more useful to the country.My understanding of the topic hasn’t changed a lot from when I starteddue to the interview. Although it has made me thought hard about going toother countries.This topic is about how people feel in other countries living there foreverand needing to know a plan for when they get over there and to know howto deal with certain things including speaking the language and knowingwhat places to go and where to ask.This topic is valuable because it shows more than just peoples experiencesis shows why people would come to Australia or why they wouldnt. It alsoshows the way people think about Australia and how it has affected themfor better or worst whether it be the kind of work to the amount of it orhow theyve been treated.English 1By Bradey MurphyTask 2
