PUPILS scored “reel” success in a national competition by turning their focus firmly on cyber-bullies.
They zoomed in on the problem by shooting a film on how troublemakers can be beaten online.
The Washington School pupils’ two-minute effort – Courage Vs Hate – came second in the Mobile Industry Crime Action Forum’s Out of Your Hands? campaign contest.
Six students, all anti-bullying mentors, took part in the Anti-Bullying Week initiative.
Year manager Amanda Bryden said: “We are a community-focused school and take bullying very seriously.
“The students were keen to bring this issue up to date and made the video about cyber-bullying, an issue very relevant today.
“As a technology school, the students use film-making skills as part of everyday classes, and they put these skills to great use to bring home this fantastic accolade.
“The pupils are a credit to the school and to their parents.”
