PHILIPSBURG:—The PEACE IS Foundation recently made a presentation of teachers and student manuals to the Department of Student Care of the St. Maarten Academy for use in their Peaceable Schools program. The manuals are essential for the successful implementation of the program. The Peaceable Schools program was introduced to all students of Forms 1 and 2 in August to October 2015. In the next phase of the program during the next academic year, Form 2 students will be given the opportunity to become trained peer mediators in the Peace Ambassadors program. PEACE IS Foundation utilized funds that were reserved from the Peace Is Paradise breakfast program of 2014 to purchase the materials.
In expressing her appreciation for the support of PEACE IS, Ms. Lisa Wilson stated, “We are extremely grateful for the work that Peace IS Foundation is doing in the community and we are happy to be receiving these books for our Guidance curriculum”. PEACE IS will continue to support the efforts of the St. Maarten Academy as it implements peaceable solutions in the school.
