16 year old Dagmara Przybysz,fromPoland said girls at school had called
her a “stupid Pole” in the days before her death at Pool Academy near
They also failed to perform CPR despite being told to by a 999 call
handler, and didn’t record incidents she reported to staff as bullying.
Before her death,she was also looking forward to her Year 11 prom and had gone shopping for a dress.
In the days before her death, Dagmara sent boyfriend Lewis Simpson a message saying:
“Not the best day at school, people saying things about me because I am from Poland. I don’t even know their names.’”
Her mum Ewelina said in a statement her daughter was a ”very beautiful
lady”, got on better with boys and most of her friends, including her
boyfriend, went to another school.
She said her daughter had been having a problem with one girl who had ”called Dagmara names”
.Mrs Przybysz said:
“‘I don’t know exactly what was said.This incident occurred only a few
days before Dagmara passed away… I don’t know whether these incidents
were racist in nature; however, I can say that on several occasions she
overheard comments such as ‘stupid Pole’.’”We think the biggest problem
for Dagmara was not racism, but bullying.”
