Addressing student behavior in schools is an issue faced by many learning institutions around the country. Daru Secondary in the Western Province is no exception.
The school is having difficulties fighting this issue and needs change from within the school administration, teachers, students, parents and the community.
This was emphasized by Daru Secondary Deputy Principal Robert Goinau.
Adding to the deteriorating infrastructure of Daru Secondary School, discipline is also an issue that the Teachers and the school administration had to tackle.
Deputy Principal, Robert Goinau, said discipline in the school was really bad. The consumption of alcohol and the damaging of school property were two main problems.
To address discipline issues the school amended the existing school constitution.
He said the school also came up with a behavior management policy where teachers and parents were more involved with their child’s behavior.
Goinau said with the new amendments in the constitution and the policy on student behavior, the school has noticed a drop in the number of student behavior issues since the beginning of the year.
However, he said that could be changed with the assistance of improved facilities to encourage students to concentrate on learning and with more help from the community, he believed the situation could get better.
