Bureau Veritas certifies EuroSchool as ‘Safe School’, first such school in India

Maximum people consider school as the safest and familiar place to hang out with friends for fourteen beautiful years of life. But sometimes the temple of learning becomes the place which leaves a bad mark in one’s life. Hence, the safety of the child in school is of utmost importance. The schools on their part always take initiatives to identify and address the gaps in safety standards along with growing concerns on child safety in schools. EuroSchool has set the benchmark in school safety by receiving the title of ‘Safe School’ for students from conformity assessment and certification services company Bureau Veritas.

The school runs under the aegis of EuroKids International. It is the first Indian school to receive a ‘Safe School’ certification for all its 10 schools in the country, including EuroSchool Undri and EuroSchool Wakad in Pune. EuroSchool also has the presence in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Surat and Hyderabad. The Safe School project is a part of EuroKids’ larger vision of setting global standards in the Indian education system.
