On April 11th, 13 students from Triton participated in the Annual North Shore Mediation Forum in Peabody, MA. Peer Mediators from several Massachusetts schools get together annually to hear a speaker and then participate in workshops focusing on recognizing potential conflict issues and how to effectively resolve them. At these workshops students also learn strategic ways of being good citizens with the sole objective of promoting peaceful environments in their schools.
Increasingly, with each passing year, Triton Peer Mediators have been taking on more prominent roles in the Forums. For example, this year, three of Triton’s officers, Casey Ross, Laura Frackiewicz, and Michael Woodbury were all assigned leadership roles by the Director of the North Shore Mediation Organization, Ms. Anya McDavitt. Laura opened the Forum with a welcome speech, Casey had the honor of introducing the Key Note Speaker, Ms. Mariah Steele, and both Casey and Michael wrapped up the event by giving closing remarks. Our Triton students continuously exhibit an impressive level of competence and leadership both inside and outside of school, thus making them outstanding among their peers from other schools in the region!
