The National Parent Teachers Association is concerned about what's taking place in and around the nation’s schools, putting the lives of children and teachers at risk.

Ms. Zena Ramatali told C News that parents have been writing letters to the NPTA asking about what can be done to improve security at the nation’s schools since a culture of fear is slowly taking hold.

"Two murders were committed outside a school in Arima and there's only one female security officer on duty on a daily basis and the parents are coming fearful now."

Ms. Ramatali said schools must continue to have evacuation drills and Principals and teachers must be properly trained in case of an emergency.

She also raised concerns about a black-out at the San Juan South Secondary School which caused their lab to be closed.

"That in itself is a safety hazard so these children will be out of their labs, they have exams on the way, already in progress, and these children will not be able to do their labs."

The NPTA's move comes amidst the fake grenade bomb scare outside the Point Fortin RC School on Tuesday, and the hoax bomb threat at the University of the West Indies.
