Stockport Grammar School was the proud host of the latest Diana Award Be Strong Online Ambassador training programme.
Provided by The Diana Award Charity, in partnership with Vodafone, the Be Strong Online campaign aims to provide pupils with the skills and knowledge needed to run online safety campaigns, assemblies and sessions in their school to help their peers increase their digital resilience.
20 Second and Third Year pupils volunteered as ambassadors and they were joined by pupils from St. Anthony’s Catholic College, Flixton Girls School, The Hyndburn Academy, The East Manchester Academy, Levenshulme High School and Whalley Range High School.
The pupils discussed a range of topics including cyberbullying, digital footprints, selfies, privacy settings and how to digitally detox.
Our pupils will now work with Mrs Helen Lawson, Head of Lower School, to provide support and information to all pupils in First, Second and Third Year. Ambassadors will continue to receive dedicated support and resources from the Diana Award team throughout the year to support their new roles.
The Diana Award is a charity legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world. The charity’s mission is to foster, develop and inspire positive change in the lives of young people and is supported by HRH Prince William, HRH Prince Harry and their team at the Royal Charities Forum of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
