THE central government’s sub-delegate Andres Garcia Lorca recently presented diplomas to 53 schools in Almeria Province.
The schools and the province’s police forces had all participated in Plan Director during the 2014-2015 academic year and a presentation ceremony in their honour was held at the Sub-Delegation in Almeria City.
Plan Director is designed to encourage harmonious co-existence and improve safety in schools, said Garcia Lorca as he underlined the government’s commitment to the Plan.
It is instrumental in averting problems arising from new technology, social networks and drugs that are most likely to affect young people. The programme’s informative talks on these potential dangers are aimed not only at pupils but also their parents and teachers and 190 centres took part in 384 activities.
These centred principally on talks for pupils, exhibitions, practical demonstrations and meetings with teachers. The internet, bullying, drugs, alcohol, gender abuse, xenophobia, racism and juvenile gangs were the most-discussed topics, Garcia Lorca revealed.
Improving surveillance and safety in the vicinity of participating schools is another Plan Director objective and Garcia Lorca thanked all the police forces involved in the programme.
