Video: Students create rap song to spread anti-bullying message
A GROUP of Braintree students have created a rap song to help hammer home the anti-bullying message during the dedicated awareness week.
Year six students at John Bunyan School wrote the lyrics when set a task by teachers to highlight the key themes of bullying.
Almost 30 pupils have seen the performance, with the school’s head teacher Amanda Woolmer, lauding the work of his pupils.
“This was a superb performance that helped and supported the pupils in deciding how to respond positively to the type of situations that they may encounter in real life,” said Mrs Woolmer. “
My staff also enjoyed it, considering it highly relevant and pitched appropriately for the age of the pupils.

”The performance helps young people to understand the dynamics of relationships and encourages them to makes positive choices, understanding how other people respond to their behaviour.”
One of the students who helped to mastermind the lyrics said: “Our class decided to create a rap about bullying to help us remember some of the interesting things we learned. This rap became a classroom theme song and was something we recited everyday. It really helped us to remember our promise, not to bully other people and to try to be nice to everyone.”
