Hatch End High pupils tackle bullying with new initiative

Secondary school pupils are to start a new anti-bullying campaign which will offer a safe space for their vulnerable peers.

Anti-bullying ambassadors at Hatch End High School will be creating an area called the Treehouse at their school.

It will be used a common room for all year groups and is available to any student who feels they need extra support during break times and before and after school.

Anti-bullying co-ordinator Jan Harwood said, “We are dedicated to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for all pupils at Hatch End.

“Students are very much at the forefront of achieving this, and this latest project further demonstrates their commitment to offering support to their peers.”

The project, helped by a £500 grant from the Jack Petchey Foundation, aims to further eradicate bullying at the school.

What a brilliant initiative by these Secondary School pupils.All the more creditable since the young students have taken charge of such a serious and sensitive issue and decided they will deal with it themselves.They have recognised how devastating the impact of bullying can be on a young person's life and have stepped in to"be there" to get them through this trauma.We need more people in society to take ownership and sort out various problems that beset our communities.

Harrow is blessed with such wonderful youngsters.They are role models for other youths as well as seniors to follow.We need to rack our brains and come up with schemes of all sorts which will support our peers and assist vulnerable folk.

So proud of the students at Hatch End High School for not only organising this anti-bullying campaign but also providing a "sanctuary" where the victim can feel safe and supported.You even have a co-ordinator and are well on your way to becoming future leaders, so badly needed in our community.!! Would love to visit your school and see your project first-hand.
WISH YOU EVERY SUCCESS FOR THE NEW YEAR.HAVE A TERRIFIC CHRISTMAS.You have earned it!

It warms one's heart when you hear of youngsters behaving in such a mature manner. Well done those Hatch End High pupils.

Is there any chance they could do a presentation at the Civic Centre because the warring Harrow councillors could learn a lot from this group of youngsters about conflict resolution.

Sounds like an excellent idea.

Perhaps we could invite them to our forthcoming meeting of the HPCCG around the end of March,our very last one!Their initiative is inspirational.

Their Anti-bullying Campaign would benefit youngsters and might even motivate other schools to follow their excellent example.

I am sure Harrow's Borough Commander,Simon Ovens, would be keenly interested as would Councillor Janet Mote, portfolio holder for Harrow Schools.Shall take it up with them .
