DGS Principal Reports Success In Tackling Anti-Social Behavior
Principal of the Dominica Grammar School (DGS) Alicia Jean-Jacque has reported improved discipline at the school.
This comes following an end of term review of new structural measures introduced in September.
In addition the senior management team of the DGS met with senior education officials on Wednesday December 12th, to discuss new management structures implemented at the start of the 2012-2013 academic year to stem incidents of deviant behaviour among students.
Ms. Jean Jacque says, with the aid of three deputy principals, she had success in addressing anti-social behaviour in the first term.
The DGS was segmented into a lower and upper school, a move, Ms. Jean Jacque says, helped with the effective management of a student population of 827.
Ms. Jean Jacques says she believe the results will show that the students are comfortable and that they are learning better because the environment is so much more peaceful and calm.
She added they will review what they are doing and try to improve at every stage, as it is continuous monitoring and improvement.
We are not going to rest on our laurels after one term, she added.
The Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development also completed fencing of the entire perimeter of the DGS grounds, at an estimated cost of sixty-six thousand eight hundred and eighty-eight dollars and sixty cents in time for the start of the first term.
Ms. Jean Jacque says this has eliminated the problem of members of the public accessing the school grounds without permission.
