PUPILS at Purfleet Primary School held an anti-bullying event.

Students entertained the community with performance poetry, songs and dance around the anti-bullying theme.

The poems were written during work to tackle bullying and dances were devised as part of workshops with the Royal Opera House.

Headteacher Debbie Henley said: “I am so incredibly proud of all our children.

“Following anti-bullying week they have created their own poems with some serious and touching messages.

"This has not only been an important event for the school, but parents and the community.”
