Training for SPBMP Teams
Teams from all 22 public secondary schools and five private secondary schools, responsible for the implementation of the Schools??? Positive Behaviour Management Programme (SPBMB) in their respective institutions, will participate in a two-day training workshop next week.
The workshop will be held on Monday, October 20, and Tuesday, October 21, at United Nations House, Marine Gardens, Hastings, Christ Church, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The five private secondary schools participating are Barbados Seventh-Day Adventist Secondary School, St. Winifred???s School, The Ursuline Convent, Windsor High School, and Metropolitan High School.
The objective of the workshop is to ensure that school teams are familiar with their roles in the implementation of the SPBMP within their respective schools.

This training follows a series workshops geared towards sensitising several groups within the school system.

On October 9, a similar exercise was held for Senior Teachers attached to second forms.
