GRAVESEND - Brooklyn middle schools students are battling bullying in a creative way--singing their message loud and proud.

Students at I.S. 228 in Gravesend are wrapping up weeklong performances of their musical, called "Dragon Slayer." The aim of the play is to make the school a better place for everyone.

The show starts off with a divided student body, with the popular kids and the nerds, but as the show goes on the students unite to fight a dragon that symbolizes bullying and gossip.

At the end of the show, students work together to slay the dragon while learning how to become more accepting of people from all backgrounds.

The lyrics to one of the songs in the show are, "You're never alone in a school that's a dragon-free zone." The students say they'll make sure to always live by the motto.
