The Board of Education recognizes the need to ensure the personal safety of its students. The aims and objectives of the Board will be to:
- Protect our school children from school personnel, or others (including children) who may sexually, physically, or emotionally abuse children.
- Provide personal safety programs for children to assist them with their own protection from sexual offences.
- Assist personnel in identification and their legal duty to report cases of child abuse under the Child, Family and Community Service Act (Part 3: Division 1(14.1).
