A SOUTH Derbyshire primary school spent a day teaching its pupils the importance of forging good friendships.
The Belmont School, in Swadlincote, put on the day as part of its anti-bullying project.
Children were put in mixed age groups, took part in activities, made friendship bracelets and were taught what it takes to be a friend to each other.
Head teacher Sue Walker said: “It was a good day looking at the skills they need to be a good friend.
“It is important they develop these skills because it can help pupil make friends in different years and they will always have a friend in school.
“It also helps the younger children mix with the older year groups which helps them feel safe in school.
“They also learnt the importance of being a good friend.”
