Bob Cook Bob Cook - Chair of the Anti-Bullying Network
Bob Cook chairs our Advisory Committee on behalf of the Association of Directors of Education in Scotland. He took over from Gordon Jeyes who chaired the Committee and supported the Network enthusiastically through its first two years. Bob is Head of Resource Development within West Dunbartonshire Council’s Department of Education and Cultural Services. He spent many years as a teacher of geography and guidance in Lanarkshire schools, eventually becoming assistant head teacher with responsibility for guidance at Uddingston Grammar School. In 1984, he became Adviser in Guidance for the Renfrew, and Argyll and Bute Divisions of the former Strathclyde region and then, in 1990, Regional Adviser in Guidance for Strathclyde. His interest in anti-bullying dates back to this time. He was a member of the development group for the Promoting Positive Relationships materials and delivered training across schools in Strathclyde and in several other Scottish regions. He also ran a variety of workshops and training sessions for parents, pupils and community groups and was a regular contributor to conferences.
Pamela Munn Professor Pamela Munn -Network Director
Congratulations to Professor Munn, who has been appointed Dean of Moray House School of Education. She will continue to direct the Positive Ethos Programme, which includes the Anti-Bullying Network and the Scottish Schools Ethos Network, but her new responsibilities will obviously mean that the services of the Networks will largely be delivered by other team members.
Meg Cowie Meg Cowie - Research Information Officer
Meg has a personal commitment to anti-bullying work which stretches back more than ten years. She has worked for the Network on both a part-time and volunteer (thanks Meg!) basis and is currently employed full-time writing summaries of bullying research which will be available on our website this year.
Anne Clifford Anne Clifford - Network Secretary
Anne Clifford joined the team on a temporary basis about 18 months ago. She keeps threatening to return to her native Australia, but we hope that her flight home will be long delayed. She handles most of the InfoLine (Tel: 0131 651 6100) calls, carries out behind-the-scenes administration, and uses her design skills on Network publications.
