This programme was designed and presented nationwide by the charity called The Diana Award. This charity was founded in 1999 in memory of Princess Diana to recognise of all the charitable work she undertook during her life, including working with vulnerable children.
“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” – Diana, Princess of Wales.
As part of Anti-Bullying week, seven Bethany pupils participated in a day’s training at Cobham Hall. Throughout the day there were discussions on what an anti-bullying ambassador is, and we learned about different types of bullying behaviour, how to recognise the signs and symptoms of bullying and plans for implementation of anti-bullying strategies within schools. There was also an opportunity to meet with pupils from other schools throughout Kent and share ideas and opinions.
Harrison, Hannah, Daniel, Alex, India, Will and Lewis, who attended the course, joined in all activities, gave excellent ideas and were great company. These pupils embody the qualities of an anti-bullying ambassador and Bethany looks forward to working with them and the other pupils chosen as we create useful, effective strategies for Bethany.
