A group of young people from Hereward College have been trained as Diana Award Anti-bullying ambassadors and are part of the National Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Network. They are responsible for leading anti-bullying initiatives in the college, encouraging fellow students and staff to take action against bullying. More than 16,000 students have been trained to be Anti-Bullying Ambassadors across the UK and just a few schools and colleges (Hereward College being one) have been selected to be showcased for their outstanding work. Filming took place at the college to be shown at a national celebration event at the UK’s Facebook headquarters.
Dayna Donnelly, Student Mentor at Hereward, said: ‘It’s a real privilege to be able to highlight the work of Hereward’s anti-bullying ambassadors in this way. The focus at Hereward has been on preventing bullying rather than solely dealing with the consequences. We are so proud of the young people who do any amazing job to help change the behaviours and attitudes of learners and the college as a whole.’
