Anti-bullying was the main focus at a Fens secondary school, with workshops and a charity cake stall.
Students at Marshland High School, West Walton, made friendship bracelets, posters and badges during lunchtime workshops.
Bunting was also hung around the school and a pledge tree was set up for teenagers to write messages on leaves, while two special assemblies highlighted the effects of bullying.
On Wednesday, a cake stall helped to raise a total of £230.79 which will be used to fund the visit of an anti-bullying roadshow.
Events tied in with anti-bullying week, which is marked every year at Marshland High with awareness activities.

Debra Benson, the school’s head of Gainsborough House, said: “Every student was able to join in activities during lunchtimes. They donated money to take part in some activities but some activities, such as writing on the pledge tree, were free.
“We have a very strong pastoral team at the school that is permanently available for students. We also have what we call an independent learning centre where the students go if they need support.

“The centre is next door to the school and, should students suffer with bullying, they can continue with their work there in a safe environment until they feel ready to return to classes.”
