On Thursday, 11 July 2019, students from WHGS took part in the Anti-Bullying Ambassador’s Programme (The Diana Award).
The Diana Award was founded as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. Since 1999, the Diana Award has recognised over 45,000 ordinary young people who have made an extraordinary difference to their community.
Twelve other schools participated in the event. The aim of the training was to empower students and staff in order to change the attitudes, behaviours and cultures of bullying, by building skills and confidence to address different situations both on and offline. This was all delivered through The Diana Award’s renowned peer-led approach. The students undertook a series of activities and challenges. These involved group work, analytical skills and creative thinking.
They were all awarded with an Anti-Bullying Ambassador’s Certificate. It was an event that all 10 WHGS students thoroughly enjoyed. One of the students commented, “It has been so much fun today and we learnt so much!”
