Y8-Y10 Conflict Resolution Session with Dr Erinma Bell

Wednesday 9 November 2022

A group of our Year 8-10 boys attended a Conflict Resolution Session, hosted by Dr Erinma Bell on Wednesday 9 November.   

All boys who attended were informed by Dr Bell what the dimensions of conflict were and how it, as a force, involved all who witnessed it. Many ideas and example situations made the students aware of how they could be complicit in conflict, whether or not they were instigators or retaliators (the third side of conflict). Dr Bell then explained how people had the capacity to turn this destructive conflict that they may have witnessed into a constructive force for change.

Dr Bell’s speeches were truly inspiring and prescient. She called upon an array of male volunteer speakers to share their experiences of conflict, from their youth and their own involvement in gang violence. They explained the dangers of how even the least complicit can become entangled in a frightening world, if they did not observe their own role in a conflict, which had accidentally drawn them in.

All boys came away with a new sense of responsibility and a toolkit to enable them to deal with future conflict in a sensible and proactive way
