Glass Bottles Banned at Schools for the Safety of Students
The Sindh Education Department’s Directorate of Inspection and Registration of Private Institutions (DIRPIS) has issued a notification barring private schools in Sindh from selling beverages in glass bottles on campus. This move comes after Huzaifa, a fifth-grade student lost his life at a private school in Karachi due to injuries caused by a soft drink bottle explosion at a school stall.
According to DIRPIS Additional Director Rafia Mallah, the school’s registration has been canceled, and the administration has been fined for neglect that led to the tragic incident. As a result, private school principals and administrators have been ordered to prevent the selling of drinks in any glass bottle on school property.
The notification also states that schools cannot keep or sell soft drinks in glass bottles. Instead, they are permitted to sell them in plastic bottles or cans. This measure has been taken to ensure the safety of children and prevent such distressing incidents from happening again.
The decision by the Sindh Education Department’s Directorate of Inspection and Registration of Private Institutions is a step towards ensuring the safety of students in private schools. This ban on the sale of beverages in glass bottles is a reasonable step towards preventing similar incidents from happening in the future. It also highlights the importance of schools taking appropriate measures to ensure the safety and well-being of their students.
In a summary, this decision highlights the need for schools to prioritize student safety and take the necessary steps to ensure it. Schools must implement safety measures to prevent incidents that may harm their students.
