Grounds and Safety Panel
Your child’s school hasn’t had a crisis that warrants national news coverage, but you’ve become increasingly aware of disturbing incidents that aren’t as harmless as they once seemed. Even if you haven’t noticed anything unusual, it’s never too early to start thinking about school safety and security. Preventive action can keep minor problems from turning into serious ones. This is the reason why we have a “Grounds and Safety” Panel. We are very proud of this team. Schools are among the safest places for our children to be, with more victimizations occurring away from school than at school. Therefore we have our panel to rather prevent any problems at events and functions. Our first priority is to work collaboratively to improve school safety and security. I need to thank Teaghan van Zyl who was the head of my panel this year. She in co-operation with the team is doing an excellent job.
