School on the defensive
workshops are valuable because if a boy finds himself in a threatening situation, it is important that he knows how to deal with this in the safest way possible.
“Using demonstrations and roleplay, Steve Fincham showed the year eight boys how to interpret the danger signs that could lead to an aggressive situation, methods in which to distance themselves from that environment and then, if that isn’t possible, techniques that may help them to diffuse the situation.
“The boys really enjoyed the day and hopefully took away information which will help them should they ever need it in the future.”
