What is Cool Schools?
Cool School Peer Mediation Programmes has been operating in New Zealand since 1991. It has been delivered to nearly two thrirds of our schools nationwide. This proactive programme empowers students by teaching them skills and proceses to resolve conflict peacefully. Individuals learn how to use conflict scenarios as an opportunity to build positive relationships with others. Non-violent, constructive, co-operative, WIN/WIN solutions to a problem are negotiated. Agreements are made which are mutually acceptalbe to all parties concerned.
