School introduces new security measures to safeguard pupils
Worried by increasing cases of abduction of school children, the management of Crown International School, Odo, Ado Ekiti, said it has beefed up security within its environment to secure lives and property.
Speaking with newsmen to unveil measures being put in place to secure the school, the Principal, Mr S. S Ojo, said a team of security experts were assembled to advice the management, adding that their recommendations are being implemented.
Ojo said: “There are proactive measures being taken to guarantee maximum safety for our students. I am privileged to tell you that a retired military officer has been employed as chief security officer with a mandate to manage the security apparatus.”
And as part of further measures, the principal said closed circuit cameras have been installed in strategic places within and around the school, while also establishing partnership with heads of security agencies to complement its internal efforts.
Ojo assured prospective parents that the management of the school would not leave security issues to chance.
He noted that the school would run both Nigeria and British curriculum, which is the main feature of international education.
He added that the school plans a maximum of 23 students per class in line with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s (UNESCO) standard.
