Debenham: Sir Robert Hitcham School students unite for anti-bullying week

BALLOONS were launched at a Suffolk school as part of an anti-bullying drive.

Each one let off at Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School in Debenham had a label attached detailing a child’s wish for the future.

The school’s newly-trained anti-bullying ambassadors organised games and activities throughout the week as part of a campaign to highlight the issue.

Head teacher, Jane Taylor, said: “Although bullying is not a particular problem at Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School, it is important to educate all our children and give them the confidence and skills to speak out against bullying.”

Last month ten pupils and two members of staff attended The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador training event at Aylsham High School in Norfolk.
