The Education Network has a new Panda friend who will be helping us in schools across the North East!

Panda needs a name and we will be asking schools in the North East to help us find the perfect one! Our cute, cuddly mascot will promote our national anti-bullying initiative for 2016 in association with South Shields Community School.

Panda will have some special friends helping to choose the winning name from the entries we receive  – and the winning name will win the school a choice of School prizes worth up to £400** and the student who comes up with the name will also win an HD Kindle Fire.**

Our furry friend will then come along to the school to be officially named!

Don’t miss out on these fantastic prizes and a chance to meet our anti-bullying Panda in person!

The competition closes on Friday 18th March 2016 and all North East schools are encouraged to take part by clicking HERE.

Please feel free to share the link from our website with students, teachers and TA’s to make sure that Panda gets a brilliant name!
