THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE MAKES SURPRISE VISIT TO BURLINGTON DANES

ACADEMY
London

Thursday 8 February, 2018

To help mark Children’s Mental Health Week (February 5th-9th) and Safer Internet Day (February 6th), The Duke of Cambridge has made an unannounced visit to Burlington Academy, London, to surprise children taking part in an assembly on cyberbullying and its effect on young people’s mental health.

Hosted by YouTuber Dan Howell, the assembly focused on cyberbullying and what can be done to combat it. Watching the assembly were pupils of Burlington Danes Academy, which is a comprehensive secondary school educating over 1,000 pupils aged 11-18.

They were joined by a number of pupils from Kensington Aldridge Academy (KAA) which had to close in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire. Burlington Danes Academy hosted three year groups from KAA before a temporary school building was built on neighbouring land.

His Royal Highness took time during the assembly to talk about the Heads Together campaign on mental health, as well as meet with social media influencers and young people who’ve been working on the campaign for ‘Stop Speak Support’.

Stop Speak Support is a new digital code of conduct that was launched by The Duke of Cambridge in October, and is one of the outcomes of the Royal Foundation‘s Taskforce on Cyberbullying. The campaign aims to help young people navigate life online and support them in responding to cyberbullying.
