Big Dave Buddy scheme adopted by Sandwell School

WEST BROMWICH, U.K. - Feb. 25, 2016 - PRLog -- Following the success of Big Dave's visit to Newtown Primary School (Sandwell) on 18th November last year, headteacher Karen Godwin has engaged the Angel of Strength to introduce the buddy scheme to year four over the coming term in a number of weekly sessions. Building on the successful model Dave has piloted elsewhere, pupils will be encouraged to become positive contributors during lessons that encompass health, wellbeing, citizenship, exercise, nutrition which are all components of the ongoing anti bullying campaign.

Dave says: "Big Dave's Buddies is a scheme where young people in a school, community or youth club act as leaders/peer mentors, leading by example. The buddies have a special status & are expected to be pro-active in prevention of bullying & anti social behaviour. Both Karen Godwin & I believe the school should be the heart of a community where good things emanate outwards."
