ABSTRACT

The purpose of this qualitative case study was to describe the campus bullying experiences of senior high school students in a certain secondary school at Davao City, Philippines. Three senior high school students who experienced bullying in the campus were chosen through purposive sampling. In-depth interview, observation and field notes were utilized in the gathering of data. The study ensured that ethical considerations were observed during its conduct. It highly followed the components of trustworthiness namely credibility, transferability, dependability, and confirmability to ensure the validity of the qualitative data. Based on the narratives and thematic analysis, study revealed that victims of bullying experienced name-calling or verbal abuse, physical bullying, and social discrimination. Passivity, optimism and perseverance, and peer-support system help students cope with the adverse and traumatic experiences of bullying. Along with the insights and realizations, the study emphasized that campus bullying leads to emotional distress and low self-esteem, bullies should be sensitive to others’ emotions, and bullying should be minimized, if not avoided, in the school. Hence, a call to address such predicament is highly encouraged in order to create a learning environment where students are safe and protected from any form of abuse.
