Mentors in Violence Prevention

Senior pupils have been working with Mrs Connor and Mr Martin on the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) programme and sharing their knowledge with other pupils in the school. On the most recent in-service day, five brave souls – Michael Clark, Ryan Duddy, Katie Ann Hunter, Luke Dickson and Hannah Coakley – spoke to the entire school staff about the project, what they’ve been learning and how it is put into practice.

The MVP programme is designed to empower young people, giving them the confidence to step into circumstances that feel wrong, and provide a series of possible options for how to diffuse the situation without leading to violence. It is specifically designed to be led by senior pupils as leaders in their own communities.
