Earlier this term, some of our Year 12 Student Prefects went to Stonyhurst College to receive ‘Anti-Bullying Ambassador’ training. The idea was raised by the School Council and as a result QEGS now have 8 Anti-Bullying Ambassadors’ in Year 12. They have the responsibility to be mentors for pupils who may have concerns about bullying, or want to raise awareness of the issues linked with bullying.
The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign launched the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors’ Programme. The programme aims to empower both staff and pupils to change attitudes, behaviours and the culture of bullying by building skills and confidence to address different situations.
Since the training day our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors’ have been extremely busy, they have led year group assemblies for Years 7, 8 and 9 and have been instrumental in setting up a School Fun Run which is due to take place on Tuesday, 3rd July.
They have various initiatives and activities in the pipeline that will take place in the Michaelmas term.
