After the news of alleged killing of a seven year old boy in Gurugram school made it to the public, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) asked all its affiliated schools to submit a detailed report on the safety measures which are in place for the safety of the children.
“The safety of all students in our affiliated schools is of utmost importance and concern to the Council. Heads are requested to keep this safety aspect as a priority in their responsibility and duty while administering their respective schools,” said Gerry Arathoon, secretary and chief executive of CISCE.
The council has asked all the CISCE affiliated schools to tighten their audit measures for the safety of the children and submit the report to the council by September 16. “The information is urgently required and must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org,” Arathoon said.
“I am requesting all schools to furnish whatever safety measures they follow to the council by September 16 as stipulated. Safety issue is of utmost importance,” said Nabarun Dey, Bengal ICSE Schools Association of Heads General Secretary, approving the move by the Council.
The question over the safety of the children studying in the schools was raised when a dead body of a boy studying in class 2 was discovered in the washroom of the school in Gurugram. The boy was the student of Ryan International School, Gurugram.
