    Is 3pm after the school bell? Just trying to work out how this could have been avoided.

    3:15 bell at our school in NSW
    I'm not sure of other schools.

    I know in a friend's school in Perth, she has to go to the class and sign out her children every day.
    At our school, they let them out in to the yard and that's it.
    Even kindy are released each day like this.
    The teachers don't know if the parent is there or not.

    Might be a public verses private thing there though.

    My kids are at schools in Perth. Private and public. My son is in 4 yo kindy (public) and parents have to meet kids at door. This is up to year 1. Bell is at 3. I'm surprised to be honest it's not standard for 4 and 5 year olds. At the private school my girls attend the year 1s are just let out with no supervision.

    I thought DS school ( he starts next year) was a bit over the top with security ( sign in/sign outs - new 2 story building with private playground for infants school , all toilets inside the building , car stickers to enter car park, front desk at the front door always attended etc) but after reading that it makes me feel better!!!

    I'm a worrier when it comes to my kids.
    I'd much prefer some more security.

    I our school (private) dd is in prep and they have toilets in the classroom. There is a parents gate which is locked and only opened at school pickup, the other gate is like a pool safety gate so little kids cant open it.
    Toilets are all very close to the classrooms so children dont walk far.
    The principle also stands out the front every afternoon and knows nearly all the parents (we are at a smaller school)

    I would definitely bring it up with the principal regarding your security concerns ot perhaps go to a p&f meeting??

    Thanks for the link Meredith.

    I don't have a solution.
    I'd leave that to the schools to figure out.
    Having toilets outdoors is new to me.
    Back home all toilets were in the school building and if you were found at the toilets at any time other than the timed break, you'd be sure to run in to the principal or another teacher doing the rounds and be questioned.
    So the chance of something like this happening is vastly reduced.
    This pervert saw an easy target and went for it.
    Who knows who he is but I would take a guess he is familiar with the school in some way.
    Just say this becomes a thing and there's a couple of more attempts, or *touch wood* an abduction.
    What will those schools that are vulnerable propose as a solution then?
    Carry on as normal? I'd hope not.
    Anyway.
    It's just brought up concerns for me because of what I've observed in our own school. :/
    I hate sounding like a worrier. Turning in to my mother! haha
