The Interior Ministry is said to have issued advisory instructions to
schools, especially the big-name private schools, to beef up their security
arrangements against any possible terrorist attack. They have been advised to
employ sufficient number of private security armed guards, install security
walk-through gates and CCTV cameras, issue school stickers for the car/vehicles
dropping and picking up children, regulate traffic at the schools' opening and
closing times, arrange for cars to be parked at some distance from school gates,
install PA system and sirens etc, etc. These are good measures and must be
strictly followed by all. Schools should formulate their own contingency plans
tailored to their particular environs to counter effectively various emergency
situations. Staff and students must not only be trained in taking the most
appropriate action required for each contingency but periodic and regular mock
drills must also be held at least once a week to prepare everybody.
event of an attack immediate reaction and quick dispersion cannot be
over-emphasised for minimizing the risk of casualties. Mobility and light weight
are of paramount importance for quick dispersion, which would be greatly impeded
if the young students are laden with their heavy back breaking satchels. They
will simply not be able to run. It is, therefore, strongly suggested that the
students must not carry their satchels while coming to or leaving the school
gates. Satchels should be kept in school and not taken home by students. Even if
there are no lockers, which in most cases are not, the satchels should be left
in classrooms or on the student's desk. Leaving the satchels in school could
pose problem in doing homework. For that, the students could be made to stay for
an extra hour or so in schools to do the assigned homework. Doing homework in
schools is not an unknown practice. It is done in many public and private
schools all over the world. -COL. (Retd) Riaz Jafri, Rawalpindi, via e-mail (The Nation)
