A Year 12 student almost skipped her school formal after discovering a group of cruel boys had written her name down on a 'fat list'. 

Summa Wirth, 18, from south-east Queensland, considered staying home from the end of year celebration in November after she became the victim of heartless bullies at her co-ed school.
