Get safety tips on the Net

City-based SAFE Club (Safety Awareness for Everyone) is gearing up to start its own website where schools and member institutions can share methods and promote both the organisation as well as safe practices over the Net.

The club has asked the 40-odd member schools to make a webpage and the best one will be made the club’s homepage. Schoolchildren have designed creatively beautiful and technologically sound webpages and submitted their entries.

“We started the competition about one-and-a-half month ago and the last date was July 28. It was overwhelming to see that students got interested and we have about 30 entries. When children are involved in all SAFE projects, why should they not design the webpage too? After all, this is the e-age and the youngsters are good at it,” said convener Chandra Sharan.

There will be a committee that will choose the best homepage. Results will be declared by August.

The main objective of the website will be to promote the activities of the club. It will be a window to all information. The members will also be able to share their innovative safety practices online.

“An official website is the need of the hour. Once, we finalise the design we will come up with a website,” Sharan added.

Besides, the club has been hosting traffic training sessions for college students to assist the traffic department in times of need. Training for a batch of 100 students has already taken place last month and the rest two batches will be done in August. “This young brigade will help control traffic during festive seasons,” said the club convener.
