Actor and Author Discusses Anti – Bullying Core Value Characteristics
On Thursday, 21 November Years 7 and 8 were wowed by a drama monologue from the prestigious actor and author Robert Higgs.
His award winning presentation was moving and certainly had a great impact upon our students. Rob gave a powerful performance and then discussed practical ways of dealing with difficult situations, including those where the child/ person feels bullied. These were illustrated through role play, and through clips of celebrities standing up to bullies.
Robert began his work after experiencing bullying himself at school. He is now the author of two books on bullying, ‘What Have I Ever Done To You?’ and ‘Matty Doyle's Monster’ and has spoken about his experiences in various media, including Radio 1 and 2, Sky News, BBC Breakfast, BBC 7 and Martial Arts Illustrated.
