Hi @Nel_88, thank you for sharing your experience. Firstly, I want to say that what your daughter is experiencing is horrible and heart breaking. I can only imagine the emotional and psychological impact that this is having on both of you. Not to mention, the disruption to important parts of schooling and the learning environment. It sounds very traumatic and it is disheartening to hear that the school has been unable to do more to protect your child. Have you talked to the school about the unsuccessful interventions taken thus far? In some cases, parents resort to removing their child from the school. Understandably, this is not always ideal and may not be a possibility for you. In any case, it sounds like it might be helpful for you to have some support for yourself throughout this experience. There is a service called Ngala Parenting Line which offers telephone counselling and valuable resources for parents. I was also wondering if your daughter has been receiving support around her experience at school? If you are interested or would find it helpful, you can make a complaint to the Department of Education , you can do that here.
Please feel welcome to keep us updated

Hey there @Nel_88 just wanted to check in with you and thank you for sharing this. It must be incredibly painful to be going through this with you daughter. I thought it might be helpful for me to show you a organisation called Raising Children's Network - they produce age specific content on everything you can think of. Our age bracket is more so focused on teens, so I thought you might like to check out what they say about bullying here.
Sending lots of support to you and your daughter right now!
