The policy will be implemented in all public and private elementary and high schools nationwide starting the schoolyear 2012-2013.. A Child protection committee composed of school officials, teachers, parents, students, and a community representative will be formed to attend to the problem on how to exercise disciplinary action and recommendations to prevent bullying and other forms of child abuse committed by adults including teachers, persons of authority and classmates. A code of conduct to be reviewed every three years will be added to the school’s policy to ensure child protection and safety.

Parents will now have fewer worries on bullies who intimidate and frighten their children as each school child now is protected under the new child protection policy.
