Parkinson’s no-fight movement


Share post:

THE BARBADOS YOUTH ACTION PROGRAMME (BYAP) has partnered with Parkinson Memorial School on a series of self-development sessions with students starting in September.

Parkinson principal Ian Holder told the students on Monday it was hoped that the Pine, St Michael school would be the first to have children who did not beat up on each other.

“Watch every fight that you have on your phone and it is only black children, black people beating black people. If you have a fight on your phone that has Indian children fighting, bring it to me,” he said, adding that if there were any with white Barbadians fighting, he would also like to see it.

Holder added that the school was starting a movement under the guidance of the BYAP.  (LK)
