Primary school students were put under the spotlight last week as they used their acting skills to beat bullying.

Scotts Park Primary School, in Orchard Road, Bromley welcomed the Anti-Bullying Workshop and Bromley Children’s Champion, Pauling Tunnicliffe, to help children perform short plays.

Ahead of anti-bullying week, which ends on Friday, the pupils were presented with various scenes and characters to write into their scripts before they later performed.

Faye Willingale, Co-Director of the workshop, said: “All of the children did a fantastic job of acting out the best way to tackle bullying if it occurs.

“It is always encouraging to see the children work out themselves during the drama role-play process that everyone has a part to play in tackling bulling and they feel confident about reporting incidents.”
