Princess Mary Promotes Anti-Bullying at Sundbyøster School
Yesterday, Crown Princess Mary was present at the presentation of a new extension of the ‘Free From Bullying’ program she initiated in Denmark.
Accompanied by the Danish Minister of Education, Christine Antorini, the Secretary General of Save the Children Mimi Jakobsen, and the Mayor of Copenhagen, Pia Allerslev, The Mary Foundation launched ‘The Free of Bullying Universe’ digital program. The digital program will provide electronic discussion boards, games and e-books which promote the anti-bullying message.
The presentation took place at the Sundbyøster School in Copenhagen, where Mary was greeted by students and teachers. In an interview later on, the Princess said that it is important to continue working on this project because “combating bullying requires a long term commitment, as new children will start in 0 grade every year and they have to be in an environment where there is safety and space to be themselves.”
