The Diana Award - Anti Bullying Ambassadors Training - 25th April 2019
Bullying can happen in many different ways. It can include teasing, being hurtful to someone, ignoring them or hurting them. It can also happen anytime – in person, online, on the phone, in class, on the bus, in your neighbourhood or even in your home.
Bullying is usually done by people who do not feel good about themselves. They often need to put others down to feel better about themselves.
Eight pupils from years 7-12 with Neil and Liz (the Learning Mentors) recently attended a fantastic Anti-Bullying Ambassador Training day.
The Diana Award is a charity legacy set up in the belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better.
Our College Ambassadors will have the opportunity to work together as a team to promote anti-bullying policies and procedures in the college and our wider community also to work directly with their peers and to change people’s perceptions of bullying behaviour.
Over the coming weeks and months they will develop methods or informing, educating and enlightening their peers on what bullying is, how it effects people, what can be done to tackle it and where to go for support. Some of the ideas they have come up with include: a poster campaign, enrichment day activities, a pupil friendly version of the schools anti-bullying policy and creating a school notice board.
As a group they have decided to work towards gaining the Wellbeing badge which also fits alongside the schools wider policy of Mental Health and Wellbeing support.
