Do you know the ins and outs of the whole story? "The kid that got left out...what's he/she like? Is it possible this person has bullied the present giver and the present giver decided 'why on earth would I want to give him a present when he has been picking on me for months?'
I ask because this happened in my class. A kid was bullied for weeks, the little brat hit/pushed and kicked this boy, turned his friends against him, parents got involved and it didn't get any better...he hated going to school because of it.
Invitations were handed out to the boys party and the bully didnt get one.
I see nothing wrong with this.

and it is a one off is not a bully because they were mean and violent, students who have a disagreement and call each other names are not bullies they are children who are learning how to get along. Labelling children as bullies can be hugely damaging - especially when they are not bullies. It is more than an isolated incident before it is bullying. The term is bandied around in schools and the media too often for when students may simply be having friendship issues or still learning how to get along with others and socialise.

the child who was left out is one of the quieter girls...def not a bully. A bit more has come out today, seems the girl who got captain on a bit of a power trip. The other girl also applied and ever since it got announced, the captain was sort of rubbing her nose in it that she didn't get it. This last thing was final straw.
Head teacher is getting involved...parents called in etc
it'll be settled next term i guess.

It's not nice at all, whether it's bullying or not. Imagine how the kid feels

That is just awful and whether it is actually defined as bullying according to school policy, it is the behaviour of a child that is a bully.
She is lucky I have no say over her behaviour otherwise she would no longer be junior school captain. I'd be so embarrassed if a child of mine ever did something like that. If they did and the school did not do something about it, I would surely do something about it at home.

I definately think that is bullying especially because it was a premeditated act not spontanous.
