Taufil Omar assisted with the Leadership Through Peer Mediation (LTPM) via the New Zealand Peace Foundation (http://www.peace.net.nz/) as a mediator volunteer to assist in training students at Mt Roskill Grammar school earlier in the year. About 55 students received training through the Cool Schools initiative established by the New Zealand Peace Foundation. This is a great initiative via the foundation to install the basics of "mediation" earlier in peoples lives to be able to successfully deal with not only peer issues faced by students but in life generally as the students mature and gain traction in society as individuals. As a lawyer, the benefits are apparent. It means more people may have exposure to such skills which will make the work of other professionals such as lawyers, doctors, counselors, social workers, religious advisers and so forth much easier due to understanding the dynamics of how mediation works, the mediated outcomes and being able to live with an outcome without having a winner or a loser! Great initiative: - https://www.facebook.com/CoolSchoolsNZ/posts/10152352212684248
