Safety of Child in School
“Our children are most precious to us”
The security and safety of our school students is of paramount importance to us. At St. Anne’s Convent School, we believe in being a step ahead. We have always had in place a well thought of and planned system of checks and balances for the security and safety of our children. These are upgraded and improved at regular intervals. You will find them listed below. As you are aware sundry advisories are also being received on a daily basis regarding new precautions to be implemented. The school is making every effort to comply at the earliest. The good news is that most of it is already in place! Some of the precautions will require your close and patient cooperation, but we are confident that as caring parents, you will partner us cheerfully in this endeavor to keep your children safe, no matter how great the inconvenience faced.
