Three Chelsea Academy students, Tiwani Adelekan, Dany Youssef and Georg-Luca Lopez Nunn, have been chosen to be National Anti-Bullying Ambassadors by the Youth Board of The Diana Award (whose homepage is shown above). The board’s anti-bullying programme is run in partnership with the Department for Education.
Last Saturday, Tiwani, Dany and Georg-Luca attended a selection day in London. Over 100 young people applied for the Anti-Bullying Ambassador roles, and from them, 40 were shortlisted and 16 chosen to be on the board. ‘We even had young people fly from Scotland to attend the selection day,’ says Ola Okulaja of The Diana Award.
The three students will now represent thousands of schools and young people from across the UK, advising The Diana Award on policy and playing a national role on the issue of bullying and associated behaviour.
Chelsea Academy has also been chosen to become a case study school. Ten other Anti-Bullying Schools have gained a great deal from the programme run by The Diana Award, as these videos about them show.
‘We do hope your National Ambassadors will play a big part in implementing some of this good practice anti-bullying work – and will help lead it,’ Ola Okulaja told Chelsea Academy. ‘They have some great skills.’
