In response to the increase in violence in schools, the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training, with assistance from UNICEF, launched an Anti-violence Campaign in July 2018 under the theme “Peace Begins With Me: Talk it Out, Violence Solves Nothing”. Peer-on-peer violence by children was a big concern for the Ministry of Education and studies showed that between 25 to 50 per cent of children have been victims of bullying. Cyber bullying was also a major area of concern for the Ministry. The campaign includes an increase in guidance counsellors in secondary schools and hiring safety officers and social workers in a number of schools. It also involves closer relations with principals and teachers, as well as a partnership with the Transport Board. Facilitating anger management resolution classes is also another proposed strategy.
