The Maltese Association of Parents of State School Students (MAPSSS) refers to the attack on an Assistant Head and other members of staff at Żejtun Primary School, reported on various media. MAPSSS expresses its solidarity with the school workers and the policewoman who were allegedly attacked. MAPSSS believes that schools should be a place of safety for children and their educators. The necessity to promote a safe environment and prevent violence is a common mission for everyone in an educational institution and in the community in general. It requires the contribution of the entire education system, including parents.
