Pupils learn truth about prison
A charity is running a project to deter people from ending up in jail. CHARITY the No Way Trust runs workshops to try to keep young people out of prison by putting them behind bars for a day. The Prison Me No Way project runs in schools around the country. Ten schools in Bromley and Bexley boroughs have already signed up for next year.
Deputy head teacher at the Priory School Neil Miller said:
“Our school was chosen for the work we already do in the community and the relationship we have with the uniformed services.
“We were happy to do it because it deals with important issues which we want to hit head on and be proactive towards.”
He added: “The day was a big success. The staff thought it was excellent and the feedback from the children was very positive. “We would also really like to try to make this an annual event.” read article (external link)
