Be nice to people


(Photo credits:

School can be difficult. People get judged for everything: from the way they look and dress to what they like and even having a boyfriend. People think it’s geeky and wrong to like school and reading.  Wearing braces and glasses doesn’t make you a geek. People are a lot different inside than on the out, so take your time to get to know them instead of judging them. As the saying puts it; you should never judge a book by its cover, and you shouldn’t judge a human by their appearance.  Secrets spread around the school like water, and they can create serious problems such as bullying, teasing and everybody knowing…that’s why school is so hard. How would you like it if everybody knew about your private life? Whether you’re fat, thin, tall, small, blonde, coloured, smart or ginger; YOU are unique.  If you are getting bullied the PLEASE tell someone, or if you know someone being bullied then please help them!
