The Hurting Game
Cyber Safety and Bullying Program


Action packed, humorous and engaging anti-bullying and cyber safety program for even the toughest audience.

Samantha’s group spread rumours and alienate her. She becomes obsessed with body image and constantly compares herself with other girls in the media, the playground and on social media.

Desperate to fit in, Jimmy succumbs to peer pressure and becomes the tough guy harassing and bullying other students with homophobic remarks, deliberately failing maths, binge drinking and playing the fool.

They slowly begin to realise that their interactions on social media can affect their mental health and emotional wellbeing, and could have lifelong implications.
