Would you like to become an Anti-Bullying Ambassador at Newport High?

 I am looking for about 15 young people to join me on a training event in Swansea that will prepare you to become our first group of ambassadors from September 2013.
The project is run by the Princess Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme and they have so far trained 5000 young people across the UK.
At the training event in June you will be equipped with the expertise, motivation and inspiration to ensure that our school is a safe, happy one, free from bullying. You will also get the opportunity to meet other students from across south wales who are also passionate about anti-bullying, and be given a training booklet, branded materials/resources, certificate and an action plan.
If you would like to be part of this exciting group please email me at ND@newporthigh.co.uk telling me why you would like to be an anti-bullying ambassador. I will then select 15 students for the first set of training.

I look forward to hearing from you!!
