On Thursday 14th March William Prescott, Zac Marshall, Thomas Humberstone, Theo Kerr and Sam Gough from the Trinity Anti-Bullying Ambassador team went to Cobham Hall, Gravesend to complete their initial training in Anti-Bullying.
The role of an Anti-Bullying Ambassador is a key leadership role at Trinity and offers students the opportunity to develop skills and enact positive social change within the school. To be selected, students from each tutor group initially put themselves forward as candidates. The student cohort then democratically votes to decide on a small number of representatives from these candidates.
The Diana Award is a charity set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales and her belief that young people have the power to change the world. The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign works to change the attitude surrounding bullying both across the UK and beyond. The programme has a strong peer-to-peer focus, with trainers giving young people the skills and confidence to become Ambassadors to tackle bullying in their schools long after the training has finished. The Diana Award anti-bullying work is recognised as world-class thanks to this sustainable approach.
The students had a fantastic time on the trip and are looking forward to being a host school for Upskill Anti-Bullying training later this month.
