Out of 4000 students surveyed, almost all said they have experienced bullying.The report by Channel NewsAsia also added that Singapore schools do not have anti bullying programmes like those found in other countries. One good example of such programmes is the Anti-Bullying Network in Scotland. It was established in 1999 so that teachers, parents and young people could share ideas about how bullying should be tackled.

But over 2800 cases of physical bullying such as being kicked, hit or pushed were also reported...
The survey also found that in primary schools, 46 percent of instances of bullying took place in the canteens, and 42 percent in the school field.
But in secondary schools, 38 percent of bullying instances took place in the classroom, 35 percent in the canteen and 23 percent in the school toilets.
