AGGS Training Day 2018

Our new Year 9 ambassadors were trained recently and AGGS hosted the Anti-Bullying training day for schools in Manchester. The Year 9s were joined by other passionate students from secondary schools and took part in a jam-packed day!

The students learnt how to recognise bullying, the different types of bullying and how their role as an Anti-Bullying ambassador is crucial at school. Along with a fun parachute game which allowed the ambassadors to think how everyone if different yet equal, they were able to develop leadership and communication skills and elected a team leader. Susi will be updating the Diana Award regularly about the progress the AGGS team make and will be able to ask for resources on behalf of the team. The team voted for a creative and enthusiastic leader; well done Susi!

After the other schools left, the AGGS team were able to sit with the staff from the Diana Award and discuss the individual roles they will have in the team. We had a range of roles, from very confident speakers to assembly presentation makers. Jaya and I look forward to working with the Year 9s in the next year and can’t wait to see how they continue to make AGGS a friendly, bully-free school.

So, the training day was a success! We all received goodies such as a new badge and wristbands and learnt valuable skills which will help us create a stronger and more efficient team at school.

Thank you to the Diana Award staff who visited us and we hope to see you soon!

Anti-Bullying Week 2017

Anti-bullying Week runs from 13-17 November each year and the theme this year is: ‘All Different, All Equal’. The idea is to promote differences and help young people celebrate what makes them, and others, unique . Our main aim as Anti-bullying Ambassadors is to help people understand why it’s important that every child feels included in the school community and allow them to express themselves without fear of bullying.

In AGGS, the Anti-Bullying team will be presenting assemblies to all year groups and will be promoting equality throughout the week through a range of activities. So keep your eyes open during November!

Remember,
