NEWTON Abbot College has won another award for their anti-bullying work at the school. Following their selection as one of only three national showcase schools for their anti-bullying work, fourteen Anti-Bullying ambassador students and two members of staff travelled to London for the invitation-only Diana Award Anti-Bullying event.
The students were greeted upon arrival by some of the Diana Award staff members and VIP guests for the event, including internet vlogging sensation, Marcus Butler, former Doctor Who, Christopher Ecclestone, and Union J member, JJ Hamblett, before participating in the main showcase event.
The school video of Newton Abbot College was shown for the first time and the College’s anti-bullying team was invited on stage to receive their Diana Award Anti-Bullying Champion accolade.
Year 10 anti-bullying prefect Zoe McAuliffe said: “The event was absolutely fantastic and I feel extremely proud to be part of both Newton Abbot College and its anti-bullying work, as we are the only school in the area to have been recognised in such an amazing way.
“Anti-bullying work in schools is so important and I am looking forward to becoming more involved next year and helping other students to stay safe and happy in their college environment.”
Head of House and Head of Anti-Bullying, Anne Farnham, added: “The Facebook event was an amazing opportunity for the College to celebrate the many years of anti-bullying work we have put in.
“The showcase accolade and subsequent Champion Award is the recognition of all the hard work, initiative and enthusiasm shown by our students over the last few years. I could not be more proud of the team, the work they do and the College as a whole.”
