Coventry school took part in anti-bullying training

Coventry Editorial 3rd Apr, 2024   0

STUDENTS from Ash Green School in Coventry – part of Creative Education Trust – took part in a anti-bullying training session run by the Diana Award at Shireland Collegiate Academy in Smethwick.

Students aged 11 to 14 worked together and learnt about how they could change attitudes and behaviours in different situations.

The young people made an action plan outlining how to approach bullying issues which may arise at school and committed to their roles as anti-bullying ambassadors.

Samuel, year nine anti-bullying ambassador, said: “It’s a brilliant opportunity to learn the ways to be an effective anti-bullying ambassador to support students in our school community.”

The school hosted a team from Collingwood Learning with the project ‘Smashed’ – an empowering live theatre performance and interactive workshop which addresses underage drinking.

For students in year seven and eight, the workshop reflected on underage drinking themes including the emotional causes of drinking, decision making and how to help themselves and others.

Assistant principal, Angela Boland said: “At Ash Green School, we are absolutely committed to delivering an exceptional education to every student. Opportunities such as this one help ensure our students are empowered to make responsible decisions, setting them up for positive futures.”
