Congratulations to the students from Safety Bay Senior High School, who were announced as the winners of the 2010 Schools Conflict Resolution and Mediation (SCRAM) grand final, held at the ECU Joondalup Campus last week.
Sponsored by ECU’s Faculty of Business and Law, SCRAM is an interactive role play mediation competition that facilitates the development of effective dispute resolution skills and is open to all year nine and ten students from WA.
The competition heats were held at high schools across the state, with the grand final involving the team from Safety Bay SHS going up against last year’s winners, Perth Modern School.
The two teams competed against each other in a mediation session and their conflict resolution techniques were assessed by a panel of judges. Head of the School of Law and Justice, Professor Mark Stoney, is thrilled that ECU is associated with such a unique student competition.
“The Faculty of Business and Law at ECU has proudly sponsored SCRAM over the past six years and regards the competition as an important vehicle through which young people are encouraged to practice and support the principles of mediation.”
“Participation in the competition has undoubtedly improved and enriched the relationships and lives of many high school students. We wish every success to SCRAM as it continues to evolve and congratulate the students from Safety Bay for winning the 2010 competition,” said Professor Stoney.
