Following the workshops with Lloyd's Bank Employees to produce a product to help defeat bullying behaviour in schools the four winning innovative teams presented their ideas to the 'Dragon's Den' in a bid for the funds to put their ideas into practice! The Dragon's were; Mrs Douglas, Ms Arshad (Parent Governor) Mr Brewer and Mr Tsim from Lloyds. Mr Tsim said "The presentations were very professionally presented and I was genuinely impressed by the children's concepts" Mr Tsim took his copy of the presentations to show the Staff at Lloyds and as a consequence of this Lloyds have agreed to support the funding for the winning
concept as they too were overwhelmed by the quality of the children's work! We are very proud of all the children in Years 4, 5 and 6 for their participation in this element of the Anti-bullying Strategy and the winning Team and their idea will be announced after the Anti-bullying rally next Friday (27th March).
