Published on Friday, 17 March, 2017

Bridgend Communities First and Archbishop McGrath Catholic High School recently worked together in Pupils listening to presentationpartnership to set up a bullying awareness session at the school. The session was aimed at raising awareness of bullying with year 7 and 8 students to help pupils gain more of an understanding of bullying and it’s effects.

Chris Warlow, a retired Police Constable from South Wales Police, delivered an interactive session and encouraged students to think more about bullying and where to seek support and advice.  He said: “I was delighted at the way the pupils engaged with the “Words don’t hurt” session where we talked about how words actually do hurt. Whilst the session was hard hitting, the purpose is not to shock but to help them understand the massive impact that bullying can have on the victims.”
