Pupils learn to beat the bullies

Have your say

TOP tips on how to tackle bullying will be discussed by more than 150 youngsters from 18 schools around South Yorkshire today.

The pupils are getting together at Silverdale School, Bents Green.

The session has been organised by the Diana Award scheme, established in memory of the late Princess of Wales, which runs a national school anti-bullying programme.

Alex Holmes, a former victim of bullying, will lead the training to create ‘ambassadors’ who will then work to tackle the problem in each of the schools.

He said: “As a former victim of bullying I know how isolated and unhappy a young person can feel when they are being targeted and I am passionate about helping these people.”
