In today's world, security is an increasing priority for schools. CCTV is now being used to reduce bullying by placing cameras at strategic locations. When an incident occurs, a teacher can review the footage and identify the culprit or culprits. Some schools are using CCTV footage as an evidence to show the parents of misbehaved students that their child has a problem. The entire campus of SHIS, as well as each and every classroom is equipped with continuous CCTV surveillance to ensure the safety and well-being of the students. The cameras are linked to a central monitoring system where every child is assessed regularly. This makes the entire process completely transparent so as to avert any untoward event.
For the security and safety of the students an effective firefighting system has been installed with smoke detectors. Experts have been invited to guide the students and management in learning appropriate emergency processes.
Authorities of Sacred Heart International School have installed CCTV cameras and GPS in all school buses with proper recording facilities. The cameras have been strategically placed in the front, middle and rear sides of the school buses to ensure maximum coverage. Surveillance cameras give the school authorities the ability to keep a check on the students when they are out of school premises while travelling to school or back home. Each bus has a helper and a female attendant who look after the children.
There is SMS service that keeps the parents informed about the curriculum regularly followed in the schools, and keeping them informed about their children progress in the classroom. It also updates the parents with their child’s attendance. This serves an important way for the parents to communicate with the school authorities. Also, parents can talk to teachers of any subject over phone numbers provided by the schools at stipulated timings.
