Children from Nottingham Academy Primary School have received The Diana Anti-Bullying Award after bringing harmony to the playground.
The role involves running games in the school yard, helping younger children, but above all, making sure everyone is safe and happy at the school.
‘We have been looking after children on the bottom and top yard. If people are naughty to others, I go over and give them a warning’, explains 9 year old pupil Kaci Wesson.
The award is named in the memory of Princess Diana and her belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. Since 1999, the Diana Award has recognised more than 42,000 young people who have made a positive difference to their communities.
‘The Diana Award is proud to recognise anti-bullying ambassadors, like Playground Peacemakers who have the confidence and courage to stand up for what they believe’, said Tessy Ojo, Chief Executive of the Diana Award.
The people behind the scheme believe that young people should be encouraged for their contributions to society, empowered to reach their full potential and engaged in social action as early in life as possible.
