Unconventional speaker and educator paying a visit to North Devon’s newest secondary school.
UNIQUE motivational speaker The Scary Guy will be working with pupils at the new Route 39 Academy in Clovelly this week.
The American comedian, philosopher and educator travels the world with his message and programmes for addressing violence and bullying in schools.
While of course the region’s newest secondary and free school is hardly expecting a bullying epidemic, Scary’s message can be applied in many walks of life.
He shows how people can be educated to deal with bullying or negative behaviour, becoming confident and responsible for their words and actions.
With a Mohawk haircut and covered in tattoos, his appearance is certainly striking but his message is about non violence and resolving conflict.
His teaching is said to offer a different stance from most anti-bullying programmes, by presenting his students with a solution for moments of trouble and teaching them how to use it.
Scary will be working with students at Route 39 from Wednesday until Friday.
