Hundreds of pupils from St Martin’s comprehensive school in Caerphilly have taken part in an international anti-bullying music video.
The pupils took part in the mannequin challenge, which featured anti-bullying messages from celebrities such as Doctor Who actress Jodie Whittaker, Friends star Courteney Cox, comedian Dawn French, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul actor Bob Odenkirk, model Naomi Campbell, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘s Alfonso Ribeiro, American television personality Jerry Springer, actress Megan Fox, musician James Morrison, Monty Python‘s Sir Michael Palin and Monica Lewinsky.
The musical project was written and produced by ex-St Martin’s pupil Daniel Curtis and his wife, Laura.
Mr Curtis said: “Being the victim of bullying during my school years long ago has stayed with me throughout my life.
“There was a great amount of emotional resonance in revisiting the physical place where it happened to film this project.
“It has been a delight to see how the school is now completely different from decades ago, the pupils are happy and supportive of each other and there is a zero tolerance policy on bullying which is implemented extremely effectively.”
