The bullying survey was conducted in partnership with the foundation Telefon pa Hubentud (TPH) as a pilot project among 8 primary schools, that were selected by TPH.

The purpose of this independent survey was to get an overview of the bullying panorama in Primary schools in Aruba.

The selected schools are a representation of the eight different zones of Aruba.

The questionnaire was designed by the Hazelden Foundation as part of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, but was adapted by the CBS, due to the length of the questionnaire itself and the complexity of some of the questions.

The participating students included all students from the participating primary schools, ranging from ages 6 – 15 years, except for the first graders.
