Following successful completion of their training with the Diana Award, the College has unveiled its newest anti-bullying student ambassadors.
Comprising twenty one students from Years 7-10, the new team will be charged with continuing the College’s award-winning anti-bullying work, including regular assembly presentations, peer-to-peer mentoring and training promotion, College-wide. Year 10 Prefect and House Vice Captain, Kyle Wheeler, was unanimously voted as the student lead and will carry out further duties, including monthly phone calls with the Diana Award to share updates and ideas.
The new team have indentified new areas of anti-bullying work that are already being undertaken, including video presentations, advising fellow students how to stay safe this summer, training staff members on the latest slang trends and social media influences, as well as undertaking student and staff surveys and creating fresh antibullying materials to be displayed around the College site.
College Head of House and Anti-Bullying Lead, Tracy Dommett, said of the newly appointed team: “I couldn’t be prouder of our anti-bullying ambassadors; their passion and dedication already shown will mean great things for our College community. We are committed to keeping students safe and happy and making good decisions that will improve their College experience, both now and in the future.”
