Prison, Me? No Way!

A range of students from years 7-10 had the opportunity to attend two workshops lead by representatives from ‘Prison, Me? No Way!’. The first session was based on knife crime and was delivered by a retired correctional officer. This looked at the increase in knife crime in recent years along with dispelling myths about the subject. The second session was led by an ex-convict and focused on the decisions he made that resulted in his jail sentence and all of the ramifications from those decisions. Both sessions were extremely well received by both students and staff and the questions resulting from the talks were mature and insightful.
