(GIS) – Schools around the island will benefit from the implementation of a programme to advance school safety and risk reduction.

The Department of Education, Innovation and Gender Relations in collaboration with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) has officially launched the Model Safe Schools Programme, that offers tools to assess the level of safety of schools.

The Model Safe Schools Programme will receive financing from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).

Meanwhile, school security officers are also receiving training in order to maintain security and enforce regulations at schools around the island.

The school security officers were awarded for their participation in a two-week basic security training programme, at a ceremony at the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force Academy. The guards are now better equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to enforce security protocol.

Twenty-five security officers were granted the opportunity to participate in the basic security training course. It is expected that a second round of training will begin shortly.
