YEAR 9 pupils at Meridian School had a visit from Crimestoppers as part of the school's ongoing RESPECT project.

David Green from Hertfordshire Crimestoppers, gave a talk and showed the students a DVD, to explain the role that the organisation plays in helping to solve crime.

The school's RESPECT project aims to educate young people about the issues of self-respect, and respecting their neighbours and community.

Year 9 business teacher, Kate Kennon, said: "The purpose is to get them more involved within our community and to try to see things from other people's perspective."
