‘I was looking for somewhere else.’

There’s no rhyme or reason when it comes to bullying. People can get bullied for no reason whatsoever. It can just be a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Emily wanted a new start.

‘Well I got bullied at school so I looking for somewhere else. I saw an advertisement and I thought it might be a better environment.’

The Learn Local that Emily found is industrious but small. Students are valued for the experience and knowledge they bring with them.

‘It was smaller and easy to fit in and stuff.’

‘I love it. Everyone is really nice. And it’s easy to get into things here.’
