A HATCH END student has been selected to sit on a national anti-bullying board.
Cesar Reyes, 14, attends Hatch End High School and was selected from 100 applicants to be a national anti-bullying ambassador youth board member.
He is one of 16 young people aged from nine to 19 from across England who will represent students and offer advice on anti-bullying policies and practices.
They will also help to plan this year’s Anti-Bullying Week which takes place in November.
The scheme is run by the Diana Award and includes 2,000 ambassadors in 300 schools who help their fellow students with issues surrounding bullying.
Cesar said: “I am delighted to be part of the National Anti-Bullying Youth Board and I am looking forward to representing young peoples’ views about bullying and sharing best practice.”
The school runs a peer mentoring system which helps students in difficulty and Cesar will now head a new team of anti-bullying ambassadors selected from each year group, to raise awareness and tackle the issue of students too nervous to seek support.
