Pupils receive training from the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme

Fifteen pupils from the Royal Hospital School together with 100 from eight visiting local schools received training from the internationally acclaimed Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme. The day was hosted by RHS and aimed to empower pupils and staff through a holistic and peer-led training approach engaging them to change the attitudes, behaviours, and culture of bullying by building skills and confidence to address different situations, both online and offline.

Rachel, a pupil in Year 12 who took part in the programme commented, "The training was very informative and beneficial, and actions taken as a result of this will be invaluable to the whole RHS community. We have formed a new team of RHS Anti-bullying Ambassadors called the ABC – the Anti-Bullying Committee which will work alongside the current Peer Support Mentors. The team has set up a S.M.A.R.T goal actions aimed at preventing bullying behaviour and prioritising acts of kindness."
