Digital Leaders stood up to bullying this Anti-Bullying Week

Published: 7th January 2020

Anti-Bullying Week 2019, organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, ran from 11th to 15th November 2019. During this time young people from around the UK ran a variety of activities in school to celebrate.

Childnet Digital Leaders were encouraged to take part and received a badge and 100 points for sharing their Anti-Bullying Week activities on the platform, which contributes to their school’s place on the Leaderboard!

Well done to all of the Digital Leaders who were involved in activities in their school. Here is a roundup of some of the fantastic things Digital Leaders did to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week 2019 and increase awareness of bullying in school.

Digital Leaders at Bromley High Junior School not only took part in Odd Socks Day but also made a short film for Anti-Bullying Week. Their creative film features a cat being bullied by a giraffe and a goat until another cat stands up the animals and they all become friends. Abigail P said “this shows how a small change can make a big impact.”
