Urging pupils to know their self-worth, United Nations Ambassador Makeda Antoine Cambridge on Wednesday advised pupils of Marabella North Secondary to stand up to bullying and to always look out for one another.
She was speaking at the school during a special assembly. The school has been in turmoil since a student Shindlar Cuffy went missing on November 26.
Students from Chaguanas North Secondary School are developing an anti-bullying app that will allow anonymous reporting of bullying in schools.
The app will also provide online counselling and immediate help and has received commendation from Assistant to the Charge` d` Affairs of the United States Embassy Monica Morse.
Speaking to reporters at the Caribbean Colour Splash Secondary Schools Anti-Bullying conference held at SAPA in San Fernando yesterday, Morse said she will speak to officials at the Embassy to provide further support.
