BUILDING FUTURE LEADERS.

"Cool Yuh Head"

The Crime Stoppers Barbados anger management programme in
secondary schools, also known as “Cool Yuh Head” is a conflict
resolution and anger management programme that has been
implemented for the past five years. It has been sponsored solely by
the Sandy Lane Charitable Trust since June 2011 after having received
approval from the Ministry of Education at that time. However now
Crime Stoppers Barbados is looking for a new sponsor(s) to help fund
this important programme.

 

  • Secondary schools are asked to allocate two class periods (80 minutes) per form.

  • We have two facilitators, Imran Richards, Advocate for Positive Personal Choices and former drug addict

  • John Roberts that have daily sessions at the secondary schools.

  • The secondary schools we have reached so far include:

  • Alexandra Secondary

  • The Alleyne School

  • Alma Parris Secondary School

  • Coleridge & Parry Secondary School

  • Daryl Jordan Secondary

  • Deighton Griffith Secondary

  • Ellerslie Secondary School

  • Lester Vaughn Secondary

  • The St. Michael School

  • Queens College

  • Parkinson Secondary School

  • The Lodge School

  • Graydon Sealy Secondary School

  • Grantley Adams Memorial Secondary School

  • Princess Margaret Secondary

  • St. Leonard Boys’ Secondary

 

  • In January 2014, the programme was rolled out at the Milton Lynch Primary School with the pupils of class 4. It was the first primary school to be engage in the programme and that was at the request of the Principal in light of escalating deviant behavior at the school. Twelve sessions were held at the school with 180 students.

 

  • To date more than 20,000 students have been touched by this initiative, in secondary schools, one primary schools, camps, and special workshops.

 

  • Cool Yuh Head has been implemented in 18 secondary schools.
