What to Do…

Creating a Safe Schooling environment is about assuring physically safety and emotional security of children and staff alike. Physical interventions aside, the role of personal and emotional interventions towards a Safe School is equally important.  Let me know your interest in supporting and contributing towards creating a framework on Emotional Intelligence & Technology Interventions as a route to enhancing the Physical Safety and Emotional Security of our kids in school.
