Students attend The Diana Award training

In March, Wellacre’s Anti-bullying Ambassador team attended The Diana Award training to support their role at school.

The Anti-bullying Ambassador training programme, delivered by The Diana Award charity, gathers young people to educate them about bullying and provide them with the skills and information to lead on anti-bullying campaigns, to promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates difference, and help them to keep their peers sale both online and offline.

Assistant Head of House, Mr Dougherty, said:

“The peer-led training was a successful and inspiring day for Wellacre students and will underpin the role they have taken on.  They have each taken skills and confidence from the training sessions, which they are keen to take back to school and use to plan an anti-bullying awareness week.”

All students attending the training successfully achieved The Diana Award anti-bullying certificate and will now go on to plan and deliver an anti-bullying campaign in the Summer term to promote key messages and support peers in school.   

Jamie, Year 9, said:

“As Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, our role is to help people who need help and advice.  The training taught us how to deal with situations and how to direct students to the support they need.”

Daniel, Year 8, said:  

“We learnt about different types of bullying - indirect, physical and verbal - and how to comfort students affected by bullying.  We’ll be working towards our Diana Award Wellbeing Badge by promoting anti-bullying awareness through different activities and events.”

The Diana Award charity’s mission is to develop and inspire positive change in the future of young people.  It is the only charity set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales and her belief that young people have the power to change the world.
