Another seven schools in the Central Division have signed up their commitment to being part of the community of Neighborhood Watch Zones.
The seven schools will join fourteen other schools that have previously signed up to assist the Fiji Police to setup their own watch zones.
Critical issues affecting students as noted by the Fiji Police include truancy, school brawls, loitering in internet and billiard shops and the issue of petty crimes.
With the theme “I watch you, you watch me” the aim of the watch zones is to build a sense of responsible citizenry among students to understand that they also have a role to play in keeping their communities safe.
The six schools are located in the Flagstaff Zone and will join their peers from the Toorak and Muanikau Zones that have already signed up for the program.
The launch scheduled this Friday will begin with a march from the Total Service Station in Flagstaff and will end at Marist Brothers High School.
As such the portion of the road from the two locations will be temporarily closed from 1.30pm – 2pm to allow for the march procession where representatives of all schools will be present.
The seven schools include Indra Ghandi Primary, The Learning Centre, Marist Brothers High, Yat Sen Primary & Secondary, Holy Trinity and Vatuwaqa Primary School.
