Will keep your children safe: Gurugram DC
Gurugram: Entrusted with the major responsibility of restoring the confidence of parents back in Ryan International School at Bhondsi, it was a tough day in the office for Deputy Commissioner (DC) Vinay Pratap Singh with few students turning up on Monday.
Even though the DC assured that the security systems in the school were being put in place, it was difficult for the senior government officials to satisfy the majority of parents.
Respecting the feelings of the parents, it was later mentioned that the school will remain close for four more days and will resume functioning on September 25.
Earlier speaking to media persons, Singh specified that the safety mechanisms will be put up in the government portal after which the parents could decide that whether they wanted the school to function or not.
Taking cognisance of the serious issue of the evidences related to Pradhyuman Thakur murder case getting destroyed due to resumption of school, he said that the entire scene of crime was sanitised to prevent any tampering.
On September 8, the Class II student was found dead in school's washroom. The accused, who worked as a bus conducter, was arrested.
Not only the Ryan International School but the bigger challenge of security systems of city schools lies ahead of the District administration.
On September 16, a meeting of the management of the private schools was called in by the Deputy Commissioner where several measures were discussed to keep the students within the school premises secure.
After the tragic incident, most of the management of private schools have committed of installing more CCTV cameras, having a medical room and female attendants for school students.
Certain schools are also making their teachers fill in the code of conduct forms. A major point emphasises in these forms is that the school staff will not indulge in any form of sexual activity with the school children.
