Conclusions Rumenia

It is very cosiderable evidence that the problem of the safety risks it's not an easy approach.In a way, it sounds quite a risky approach to take, but there may be times when we'll find it both efficient and appropriate.

Our school can illustrate both the strength and the weakness and every information about the safety risks is essential.Our children feel safe in the school building, but they feel unsafe in the playground.They fear about some strange persons and some pupils from other schools.They can choose what they want to do but there are problems with the acces to information(especially computers). Maybe that's why they choose a wrong way.Some of them become violent or agressive, some of them choose to do nothing for the school. Also, some T.V programmes have a bad influence towards them, they spend too much hours in front of T.V and they forget about their duties for the school.

 

The parents think that the greatest concern for our school are the absences from the classes, the violence, the wickedness, the lack of a guardian, a police man.

They ask for better conditions in school and the greatest concern is the guardian.In the school matters it should be involved the mayor and the local authorities. The needs of the school are big, but the school budget is insufficient.This thing affects the development of some activities.Although we tried to co-operate with them, they are restrictive to new.

With all the efforts the school do, not all the parents imply in the school's problems and they don't offer any solution.

We hope we pass by these unsafe moments and enjoy our school's life.
