Positive Images Promoting Kindness
Ivybridge Community College Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have been working towards the Wellbeing badge from the Diana Award.
The Wellbeing Badge is about encouraging positive physical and mental health and involves peer mentoring, mental health awareness, support groups, online support tools and safe spaces in school. Research has shown that wellbeing is a very important topic for young people especially during the current College closures.
The Anti-Bullying Ambassador Team has been meeting remotely and their latest project has been to create positive images displaying anti-bullying messages and quotes promoting kindness. These have been displayed in the windows at the front of their houses to help cheer up those who are currently feeling isolated.
“The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are a testament to the movement to making the world a better place. As Equality Lead within the College, I have been extremely impressed by the students’ creativity and passion in delivering a message of inclusion and respect for all. I cannot wait to continue developing the Ambassador’s role and impact on the College with their positivity.” Rachel Long, teacher of Drama and Equality Lead.
