A matter of conflict


Share post:

Students of Ellerslie Secondary School got a lesson on how to deal with conflict from someone who has devoted his life to resolving it.

Community police officer Constable Vernon Forde hosted an interactive conflict resolution session, during which he showed the children of the Black Rock, St Michael school how and how not to respond to someone who is trying to get a reaction from them.

It was all part of the school’s 48th anniversary celebrations. Andrea Baptiste, teacher and former student, said the school was hoping to have visits from members of the alumni during the week.
