MAYARO MP Rushton Paray extended his deepest condolences to the family of pupil Jesse Beephan found dead behind his school, Waterloo Secondary School, and expressed his deep concern about the situation in the nation’s schools including bullying, three cases recently occurring in the Mayaro constituency.

Paray in a statement yesterday said it is not enough to just condemn bullying, but action is direly needed.

He called on the Ministry of Education to set up a national taskforce on bullying and school violence, to be comprised of independent members, officers of the protective services, PTAs, psychologists, social workers and religious bodies.

Paray said a strong correlation exists between an active PTA and good student success rates and behaviour.

“Parents need to be more involved in the lives of students and always keep in mind that children practice what they see.” He urged PTAs to partner with religious bodies to provide children with moral direction.
