After Princess Diana's tragic death in 1997, the Diana Award was set up in 1999 to continue princess Diana's legacy of love, compassion, service to others and above all, her belief that young people, from any background or walk of life, could be inspirational role-models and help change the world.
The Diana award continues this legacy through three main programmes: Awards, Mentoring and Anti-Bullying. The Diana Award anti-Bullying Ambassador award is built around the idea that everyone has the ability to make others feel good about themselves, look after others and speak out about issues that matter to them. And of course The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador programme exists to help young people and adults tackle or prevent bullying in schools.
On the 11th June 2019, nine children from our school attended an ‘Anti Bullying Ambassador training day’ where up to 150 students from our local area worked together to be trained as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
Our students had to network with other young people, exchange ideas and share good practice about Anti-Bullying within their school setting and allowed them to explore and understand the topic of bullying.
Our 'Annesley Ambassadors' can be spotted wearing the Diana Award Anti-Bullying badge.
