Pupils from Royal High School Bath's Prep school joined students from across the country to train to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
Pupils from Royal High School Bath's Prep school have joined more than 100 students from schools across the country to take part in training to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
The training sessions, run by national charity The Diana Award, were hosted at Royal High School Bath over two days in November, with prep school pupils joining Year 3, 4 and 5 pupils from four primary schools on the second day.
Becoming Anti-Bullying Ambassadors equips young people with the skills, confidence and ability to change attitudes and behaviours of bullying in their schools. During the training, pupils joined group discussions and talked about what bullying means, the different forms it can take - face-to-face and online - as well as about how bullying can be stopped and how to go about achieving this.
Facilitators from the Diana Awards’ Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme were there to equip pupils with the tools needed to tackle bullying behaviour head on, as well as offering advice and guidance on how to create a safer, kinder school community, online and offline.
Jemma Joakim, Deputy Head Pastoral at Royal High Prep School Bath, said: "It was wonderful to see how passionate and enthusiastic the girls were. They all spoke so eloquently and expressed their ideas with great confidence. I feel proud to have such a committed team at the Prep School."
The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador programme is run by The Diana Award, founded as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales' belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. The programme is freely available to schools across the UK, is youth-led with a strong peer-to-peer focus, and recognised as world-class thanks to its sustainable approach.
