Taking a lesson from Ryan and Blue whale incidents
Government has taken a few significant steps for the safety of school children.
Taking a lesson from the incidents that happened in Ryan International School and the most played destructive Blue whale game; administration has now decided to follow certain strict rules for the safety of children.
Slumber period of administration is over or so it seems. Government has just woken up for the safety of kids after the heart wrenching episode of Pradhyuman Thakur of Ryan International School, Delhi and also after a number of kids lost their life to blue whale game and are still losing . Government has decided to make significant changes to assure that the kids remain safe, especially at school.
All government and private schools have been instructed to make a ‘3 member vigilance committee’ where one female member is mandatory. This committee will keep a watchful eye over different activities in school and give suggestions of reforms as per requirement. Board of education has also laid emphasis on teaching self defence to females by means of organising camps.
Every institute head will be responsible for maintaining a proper record of the students where the name of the student has to have parents’ phone number in the register. In case a student does not attend the school for a long stretch of time or if a student comes late to school, parents have to be informed compulsorily so that they are aware of the child’s presence/absence in school.
The Board also said that a school’s duty does not end with imparting education. Every school is responsible for creating a better person out of a child by developing his moral and cultural values. It is mandatory for all schools to register all the school bus drivers, conductors and other employees working in their institution. Absence of these records will hold the school responsible for any mishap with the students.
