"When you tease, hit, ignore, it scars."
"I am a loser, fat, stupid, gay, worthless, invisible."
"Please, please, please don't let me hurt any more."
This is the start of a new film clip made by students from three Illawarra Catholic schools to address bullying.
The clip, entitled Fix You, is shot in black and white and is set to the strains of Coldplay's song of the same name.
As the messages on the students' faces change from dark and negative to strong and uplifting, the picture changes to colour.
The video was made by staff and students at St Paul's Catholic Primary School, Corpus Christi Catholic High School and St Joseph's College and released in time for this month's National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence.
