The Big Anti-Bullying Assembly 2020
Our school took part in a virtual assembly this week which was sponsored by Nationwide Building Society. The event brought together hundreds of thousands of children empowering them to tackle bullying with a host of celebrities including; children’s TV presenters Mwaka ‘Mwaksy’ Mudenda and Richie Driss, alongside Peter Andre, Tyrone Mings, Gareth Southgate, Carrie, David and Talia Grant, Katie Leung, Twist & Pulse, Ade Adepitan, James McVey, Cel Spellman, Will Poulter, Hacker the Dog, as well as the famous voice of The X Factor’s Peter Dickson.
The children enjoyed hearing the personal stories of these celebrities and watching special performances. The assembly offered key information and guidance on how to handle bullying behaviour and the support that is available. The celebrities invited children and teachers alike to ‘put their hands up’ and pledge to put an end to bullying.
