Monday 18th November marked the start of anti – bullying week 2013. The theme this year ; “I see, I hear, I feel”.
The anti bullying ambassadors in New-Bridge Integrated College lead an assembly on Monday 18th November to highlight the effects of bullying with a particular emphasis on cyber bullying. The message was loud and clear; if you have been affected by any form of bullying it is very important to tell someone, and get help and advice on how to deal with it.
The anti – bullying ambassadors’ programme has been set up in New-Bridge for all pupils. There are a group of fifteen ambassadors, identifiable by a blue hoody, worn at break and lunch times. They can be approached by any pupil who finds themselves in a bullying situation or if they witness any form of bullying taking place they can bring it to the ambassadors’ attention. All our anti-bullying ambassadors have been trained in how to deal with these situations and their roles include;
- To help create a safe, caring environment for all our pupils.
- To be positive role models.
- To be a secure point of contact for anyone feeling distressed or worried.
With raising awareness of our anti – bullying campaign we aim to create a “bullying free zone” at New- Bridge Integrated College.
