HEADTEACHERS and school management committees have been advised to insure students’ and school property to guard against unforeseen losses due to fire, theft and strikes.

The advice was in a statement by Dr, J.G. Mbabazi, the director of education in the education ministry.

Mbabazi said following several years of strikes by students in some schools, storms, theft and fires, the ministry had failed to meet the cost of repairs, which affects students’ reading environment.

He urged parents to support the insurance of schools in order not to suffer by paying for damages when there is a problem at the schools.

The Government has recommended the National Insurance Corporation to provide education insurance cover to schools.
