It was both an informative and fun way to get trained up. There was a mixture of theory and practice throughout the day. Staff were fully engaged and enjoyed the presentations whilst recognizing the responsibility each has for student welfare. The sense of fun did not detract from the purposeful nature of the 5 hours of basic training over the course of the day.
Such is our desire to maintain the safety of your children at the forefront of our minds, we have now been able to send 74.2% of overseas teachers to be trained up. In addition, we now have 87.5% of Vietnamese teachers who have been fully trained. This ensures that when we have staff on duty or out and about on school trips we have good basic medical cover.
It is not for nothing that when asked last year whether parents felt their children were safe in school, 99% of responses were positively ‘Yes’.
