Wednesday, June 18, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: The Gang Resistance Education and Training (GREAT) program today held graduation for over one hundred boys and girls from the Bishop O.P. Martin Roman Catholic primary school in San Ignacio town.
The Standard 3 and Standard 6 students underwent weeks of training on how to say no to gangs and how to protect themselves, including anger management classes.
At this morning’s graduation, the deputy commander of the San Ignacio/Santa Elena police Inspector Reymundo Reyes congratulated the boys and girls for completing the training program, and he encouraged them to now use that knowledge to make positive contributions to their community.
The Standard 3 students underwent 6 weeks of training, while for the Standard 6 students, the training was done over a much longer period of time.
Similar graduations from the GREAT program have been held in Georgeville and in Central Farm.
