Guest their are subtleties in bullying, for example on the rugby pitch others are told not to pass etc, those who do get into trouble. These people are trying to turn others against him, thankfully only a few have done it. But that few will do anything to get him in-trouble.
Theses people are bigger than him and the rest of their class so they scare the shapanga out of the rest of them, I followed the principles and vice principles advise and made him stop retaliating, he has played the school rules and they have let him down.
One of the jibes is about his religion,it's not too common in N.Ireland and it is used to turn others against him aswell.
