Students more equipped to deal with bullying

TODAY, THE ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN came to an end with a prize giving ceremony at the Milton Lynch Primary School.
The campaign was coordinated by Delicia Sobers and Kara Maynard, two students who are in the final year of the social work programme at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill campus. They are interning at the Ministry of Education’s student support services unit.
“The campaign is part of a whole school approach which includes workshops for parents and teachers, which are still ongoing. This ceremony is part of the holistic programme which also has aspects at Belmont Primary School,” said Sobers.
The six week campaign took place on Thursdays with 34 students aged seven to ten. The goal was to make the boys more self-aware about conflict and bullying and teach them how to solve problems without using violence. (CA)
