Widad Worneh, new Coordinator for Pastoral Care and Behaviour Management, is getting stuck into her role. A key part of EducAid’s positive behaviour management strategy is the peer mediator system. Students are trained on each site to mediate in situations where students have got themselves in trouble.
The training focuses on listening skills, empathy, being a role model, mediating and conflict resolution. Being a peer mediator has a high status in the schools and the team plays a vital role in addressing issues of poor behaviour and conflict student to student and even between students and teachers.
Well done Widad on an excellent initiative.
