VIDEO: Cork kids become superheroes and fight bullying

One school in Cork has a unique anti-bullying programme - they teach their pupils to become superheroes and use their powers to stand up against bullies.

Mr White sent us a great video of his fifth class students at Bunscoil Mhuire Primary School in Youghal learning all the superhero basics, such as how to pick a good costume, picking a name and logo, physical training, learning to fly, and, most importantly, dealing with a bully.

The class are seen training, choosing powers and costumes, and, when ready, standing up for victims of bullying.

You might recognise the class from another viral video where they perform Uptown Funk.

Their primary school is so much cooler than ours was!
