TWO incidents last month have highlighted the need for school officials to pay heed to students’ safety during sports activities. During an archery practice in Gurun, Kedah on Feb 7, an arrow pierced a Form Four boy’s left eye. The second mishap saw 18 pupils and three teachers suffering injuries, after a tent collapsed on them during Sports Day in Kuala Pilah. Archery practice in schools should be supervised by school officials to ensure safety of students. “If three javelins are used, the teacher must keep an eye on these javelins, as well as his students, as they may play with the javelins by throwing them around dangerously.
