Respect each other and yourself. This is the key message from CoNEL as it launches its Respect Campaign that supports and builds on the messages of Haringey Peace Week 2003.
CoNEL is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all its learners, staff and visitors. This commitment is based upon mutual respect. The college actively promotes a zero tolerance policy against aggressive or violent behaviour, drug taking and anti-social behaviour - and is prepared to take the necessary steps to enforce its policy.
Therefore, it took the opportunity to launch its Respect Campaign at the Haringey Peace Weeks main event held at Alexandra Palace on Saturday 27th September. The event proved to be a good launch platform as it was well attended and supported by the local community.
The Respect Campaign includes:
Posters around the college campus.
Leaflets for students, staff and visitors promoting mutual respect.
Co-operation with the colleges Student Union Executive.
Plans to run lunchtime seminars for staff on safety and violence issues in the workplace.
Use of learner profiles to highlight various students who may have come across, but managed to escape, a violent incident: their experiences and what they have learned that may benefit others.
Notes to Editors:
Aimed at making Haringey safer and more peaceful by tackling crime and violence, Haringey Peace Week 2003 brought together all communities in the borough to raise awareness of the issues and how to deal with them. A range of activities were organised by schools, youth clubs, voluntary organisations, faith groups, the local police and Haringey Council from 22nd to 28th September. Events and activities during the Week of Peace included:
Community safety initiatives organised by local police, including personal safety sessions and anti-violence talks in schools.
Signing of Anti Gun Crime Pledge Board in schools
A Community Awards ceremony at Alexandra Palace on Saturday 27th September, with music, drama, art, children's activities and displays followed by a free concert in the evening.
A Walk For Peace Parade, along Tottenham Town Hall Approach, Lordship Lane and Bruce Castle on Sunday 28th September.
