Being Me School Champions

WHAT IS A BEING ME SCHOOL CHAMPION?

A Being Me School Champion is a student who advocates, empowers, encourages and inspires others to be proud of who they are and their differences.

They run campaigns to promote equality, acceptance, respect and inclusion to ensure no one in their school community is ever isolated, bullied, discriminated against or subject to prejudice for being who they are.

Their work increases student’s self-esteem, self-love, confidence and creates an environment which welcomes and embraces everyone for the unique individual they are.
