Steps to ensure girl students’ safety in schools

Tribune News Service

Malout, June 13

To ensure the security of girl students in government schools, the Education Department has asked all the school heads and district education officers (DEOs) to take some mandatory steps.

In a letter issued on Tuesday, the Assistant Director of the department directed the officials concerned to install complaint boxes in all schools. Besides, the school heads have been told to call any NGO or social activist once a month in the school premises for the counseling of students on “good touch and bad touch” issues.

The school heads have also been asked to spread awareness about the cyber crime.

Further, the school heads have been asked to send a monthly report of complaints to the DEOs, which have to be further sent twice a year to the Punjab State Commission for Women.
