GFC Community Trust deliver important message to secondary school students

Gillingham FC Community Sports & Education Foundation recently visited local Secondary School Rainham Mark, as part of Anti-Bullying week 2013. 

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 was present at the school first thing on Monday morning to get the week underway and gave a talk to 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.

This year the specific focus was on Cyber Bullying and how new ways of communicating can affect how people may bully others.

In the build-up to the week, the school also ran a poster design competition.  The lucky winner, Karis Miller, was presented with a signed Gillingham Football. 

A big thank you to all of those who entered the competition.
