As schools officially open today for the first term, Police have warned school administrations and managements on continuing with repairs and renovations of school structures after students have reported back as it may cause school accidents.
The Rwizi region police spokesperson Ibin Ssenkumbi says that schools should do repairs and renovations during holidays but when students report back such activities should stop immediately to avoid accidents like fire break outs, collapsing of the buildings among others which may cost lives and loss of property.
Ssenkumbi says that safety of students should be the key factor in schools therefore school managements should also do thorough checking of students’ property as students have a tendency of bring materials which may result into danger such as electrical water heaters, knives among others.
He says that schools which will continue with such activities and in any case something happens they school directors and management will be held responsible for the damages.
