May saw the beginning of another school re-
ceiving the ARROW Intervention Programme,
thanks to the House of Angostura.
A release said the teachers at Success RC School
are being trained to run the programme in the school
with full support from the ARROW Foundation. This
process allows the entire school population access to
the powerful literacy intervention programme and is
in support of the Laventille School Project, launched
by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley late last year.
"Angostura Limited is again at the forefront of
supporting schools and children in Laventille and
environs, and see this partnership as crucial to the
development of young people in the area," says Giselle
Laronde-West, Angostura's senior manager Hospi-
tality and Communications.
ARROW Foundation managing director Christo-
pher Bonterre, praised the efforts of Angostura in
bringing the programme to life for these students and
teachers. "It provides us with the impetus to con-
tinue to meet the educational needs of the nation's
children. ARROW's focus is on raising self-esteem
through literacy improvement, which is vital to ad-
dressing behavioural problems in students," he said.
Bonterre said, "A lot of the aggressive behaviour
found in our primary and secondary schools is rooted
in students' academic failure and the frustration this
manifests. When students are able to read and write,
they feel better about themselves allowing them to
engage others without feeling frustrated."
The foundation, which has a proven track record
working with thousands of children in schools across
T&T, is viewed as a key partner with many corpo-
rate sponsors in building self-esteem, improving
behaviour and significantly raising literacy levels of
ARROW (an acronym for Aural, Read, Respond,
Oral, Write) literacy has been proven to significantly
increase not only reading skills and performance, it
also improves spelling, concentration, self-esteem,
speech, confidence and motivation in students.
It is listed as one of the leading literacy interventions
in the UK (Greg Brooks Report 2003/2013).
ARROW is an audio visual multi-sensory
based programme developed by Dr Colin
Lane in the United Kingdom, and focuses on
learning through self-voice and multisen-
sory techniques covering reading, spelling,
dictation, speech and learning exercises.
Evidence of the link between illiteracy and
violent behaviour has been well-researched
The Department of Justice said, "The
link between academic failure and delin-
quency, violence, and crime is welded to
A study by Dennis Hogenson, Reading
Failure and Juvenile Delinquency found that
reading failure was consistently found to
correlate with aggression in populations
of delinquent boys. Statistics from the US
juvenile court show that 85 per cent of all
juveniles who interface with the court sys-
tem are functionally illiterate.
The Melissa Institute for Violence Pre-
vention and Treatment also indicates that
below level reading abilities are significant-
