UEL students educate others about effects of bullying
University of East London students organised an educational family event to raise awareness of the effects of bullying and how it can be tackled.
Last Wednesday’s event at UEL’s Docklands Campus in University Way, Beckton, featured guest speakers from the university’s faculty and a number of specialist charity organisations.
The evening, organised by a group of students calling themselves the Savoir Faire Team, featured The Stingquants, a street dance group from St Martin-in-the-Fields High School in Brixton, and a number of other singers and performers.
Stand up comedian Miraculous entertained the audience, and there was some powerful poetry about the different forms bullying can take.
Academics such as Dr Gil Robinson and Christina Hayes gave lectures on the full impact of bullying and how to prevent bullying from going unnoticed.
