Anti Bullying Ambassador training

On Tuesday 29th January, Mr Williams and Miss Jones took 11 pupils from years 8 to 10 to Ormiston Victory Academy in Great Yarmouth, to attend the Anti-Bullying Ambassador training.

The Anti Bullying Ambassador programme is part of the charity, The Diana Award, which was founded as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales who believed that young people have the power to change the world for the better.  The programme receives funding from the Department for Education and offers resources and training to schools and youth organisations.  Ambassadors are trained to educate their peers on bullying, promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates difference and to help keep their peers safe both online and offline. 

Several schools from Norfolk and Suffolk attended the event in Great Yarmouth and there was a great feeling of camaraderie and working together. Students took part in team building games and learnt more about bullying and ways to support its victims. The trainers were engaging and well informed, and gave the students the skills and confidence to become Ambassadors to tackle bullying back in their schools. 

Teacher Miss Jones said " Our pupils were an absolute credit to the school, throwing themselves into all the activities and getting really fired up with new ideas to help students in the future at CNS".
