FRHS Says No To Violence


Last week was say no to violence week at Far Rockaway HS. The school invited Hospital Audiences, inc.(HAI) to perform skits and do some interactive role-playing with our students. They worked with the same 200 students each of the three days they were at the school (March 23, 24, 25). They called their performance/training “Peace by Peace.” The group was such a hit that FRHS asked them back to do staff development for the adults. On April 1, HAI did two afternoon workshops for the Far Rockaway HS “Rock Solid” team. Rock Solid consists of school administrators, deans, guidance counselors, community based support organizations and school safety agents. Rock Solid is an important part of a new “team” approach to improving school tone, reducing incidents of violence, and fostering a sense of community at the school. HAI involved staff members in their skits, demonstrating ways to avoid escalating conflict.Last week was say no to violence week at Far Rockaway HS. The school invited Hospital Audiences, inc.(HAI) to perform skits and do some interactive role-playing with our students.
