Stay safe in the holidays

STUDENTS currently on holidays are being reminded to maintain safety and balance over their two-week break.

Acting permanent secretary for Education Basundra Kumar recently said balance and safety over the break was paramount.

She said this also applied to teachers who were also on a break.

"The right balance for students is to do revision and to have fun during the break," Mrs Kumar said.

"The school holidays are an exciting time for children and we want them to be safe. With children having more spare time on their hands, it's important they're reminded of simple rules from crossing the road to being proactive if an emergency does occur."

Mrs Kumar said the role of parents during the break was also of importance.
