Spearheaded by Ms. Kelli Jeffers, Registered Nurse and staff at the St. Patrick East Cluster in collaboration with members of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, Victim and Support Counselling Unit and Christian-based motivational group Freedom Generation, the Principles for Effective Living Youth Development Series aim to positively affect the lives of students by assisting them with character development.

The Series started on November 13th 2018 at the Fyzabad Secondary School, targeting approximately 300 Forms One to Three students who were gathered at the school’s Multipurpose Hall. The Freedom Generation Group utilised drama to captivate the students through role play and highlight the topic of self-identification. Mrs Ayanna Phillip from the Victim and Support Counselling Unit focused her interactive presentation on conflict resolution. Topics such as sexuality and sex education were also covered, as well as, Ms. Kyrie-Aarti Homer from the Nutrition and Dietetics Department encouraged students to make healthy eating and lifestyle choices. The Series is intended to not only provide an avenue to prepare students for excellence academically, but also develop their character, their overall health and well-being.
