CHILDREN dressed up as superheroes to celebrate national Anti-bullying Week.

Pupils at Hollymount School, in Hollymount Road, Worcester, donned the colourful costumes on Friday as part of a week of activities aimed at raising awareness of the impact of bullying and what to do if it happens.

Laura Weston, the school's inclusion manager, said: "We have been exploring how we can use our ‘power for good’ to understand bullying and what we can do if we see bullying.

"We began the week by taking part in workshops where we explored the effects that bullying can have on others.

"We have designed our own superheroes, created comic book strips, short videos and animations to highlight the importance of anti-bullying week."
