A FEEL good flash mob took over The Liberty Shopping Centre this morning to raise awareness for anti-bullying week (16-20 November).
More than 60 students from the Dorothy Barley Junior Academy performed a series of ‘feel good’ dance routines in front of unsuspecting shoppers at the Romford store.
The Dagenham school teamed up with Havering Samaritans, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, to empower children and young people to speak out and ‘make a noise about bullying.’
The year 6 students performed a series of surprise routines at 11am including ‘Happy’, ‘I Feel Good’, ‘Uptown Funk’ and ‘You are Beautiful’.
Lauren O’Conner, Deputy Head of the Dorothy Barley Junior Academy, said: “Our academy chain, REAch2, have an initiative called ’11B411′ which gives every child the opportunity to experience something out of the ordinary.
“We wanted to use the opportunity to create an engaging scene of positivity during Anti-Bullying Week to encourage young people to discuss bullying and other issues that affect their lives.”
