This thesis presents the results of a qualitative research conducted on a sample of 6 male and female 8th grade students of the „Tituš Brezovački“ Primary School in Zagreb. The goal of the research was to gain insight into the frequency and reasons for using social networks, the perceptions of students about cyberbullying, the frequency of performing, experiencing and observing cyberbullying, the meaning and consequences of this form of violence, the frequency of cyberbullying and the activities of the school to prevent cyberbullying. A semi-structured interview was used. Respondents largely use social media for fun and communication. Thanks to the workshop the school has conducted, all respondents are familiar with the concept of cyberbullying. Most of the students weren't cybervictims nor -bullies. Those who were cybervictims didn't report any negative consequences, and only one of two respondents reported the case of cyberbullying to her parents. It is interesting that the students have mostly considered the negative activities of their peers a joke. Half of the students witnessed cyberbullying, but did nothing to stop it from fear of becoming victims themselves. Other respondents reported that cases of cyberbullying in school were more often reported to teachers. To prevent the emergence of cyberbullying, this school carried out one workshop in the 7th grade, and a teacher of Croatian language also engaged by showing a movie about cyberbullying created by students of this school. It should also be emphasized that the meanings of students were divided on whether prevention programs are helping to prevent cyberbullying. However, most pupils believe that there should be more activities aimed at preventing cyberbullying.
