Cavendish School marked the beginning of Anti-Bullying Week by hosting a special event to launch a pioneering campaign against bullies.
The event was attended by teachers, students, parents, businessmen and councillors, all of whom were treated to a show performed by a cast of talented London actors.
The display was the first adaptation of the book ‘In Search of Indalia’, which includes songs, dance and audience participation.
The show was organised by Chi Chums Ltd, who use it reach out to children who are being bullied and promote the message ‘the more you learn the more you know, the more you know the further you go’.
Among the attendees were five of the peer mentors from Cavendish School who are part of a group headed by Trudie Godfrey, who occupies a pivotal role in bringing anti-bullying to the forefront of schools.
Janet Coles, Deputy Mayor, said, “I had a most wonderful time. The characters in this lovely book have been brought to life in a wonderful production by the four fabulous actors and the message about anti-bullying has been wonderfully presented in a way that will engage children and their parents.
“This is something we are all concerned about and it delivers it in a way that is fun and engaging. Great for Schools.”
