Naleba College is the first school in the Northern Division to launch the scholastic Crime Stoppers programme.

The launching yesterday was done by the Crime Stoppers national coordinator, Inspector Sainimili Turaga in Naleba.

Eight students were selected as crime prevention committee members and four board members working under the leadership of three teachers.

“The vision of the programme is to create a safer and crime free learning environment in schools and the mission is to promote a safer environment to live, study and work in, most importantly, to help students not to be involved in criminal activities,” Inspector Turaga said.

“For the scholastic board members, you have been chosen and given other roles and responsibilities to hold.

“This one maybe totally new but most importantly it reflects on how to handle discipline amongst students in your school.”

“The implementation phases of the programme may not augur well with the student’s reception,” she said.

“Criticism shall also be expected as it is how good things begin. Positive results would certainly materialise later.

“From the crime stoppers team, we do hope that we will work together hand in hand and make Naleba College a crime free learning institution.”

Naleba College head girl and scholastic Crime Stoppers committee president Alumeci Vakaloloma said the role was challenging as crime happens in many ways and at any time.

“I take this role with humility and we will work together with the students and board members to keep our school crime free.”

“I believe that if we fight crime from a younger age our nation in years to come will be crime free.”
