Gills Players visit Rainham Mark School for Anti-Bullying weekGillingham FC Community Sports & Education Foundation recently visited local Secondary School Rainham Mark, as part of Anti-Bullying week 2012.
The school are actively looking to educate their students about bullying and organised a variety of sessions, tasks and speakers to attend to help deliver the message.
Adam Lawrence from the Community Team visited the school on Monday morning together with first team players Ben Strevens and Charlie Allen, to get the week underway and address the whole school in their assembly.
He discussed what the club do in the local area to tackle various inclusion initiatives, touched upon the Respect campaign and spoke about teamwork and collective responsibility.
After the assembly Ben and Charlie spoke with a selection of students who quizzed them about their personal experiences of bullying. There were some really excellent questions that led to a great discussion in the group.
In the build-up to the week, the school also ran a poster design competition. The lucky winner Jade Fawcett was presented with a signed Gillingham Football and two match tickets.
A big thank you to all of those who entered the competition.
