Health and safety

Health

 

Daily management

 

The entire school team is trained in first aid thanks to the school’s partnership with the Parami clinic, and its French doctor, Doctor Cattin.

On each campus, a first aid kit allows the staff to react to small everyday injuries. For medical emergencies, the school’s procedure is to turn first to the privileged contact communicated by parents at the start of the year, or failing that, we contact the Parami clinic which takes charge of the student immediately.

Regularly during the year, the teams from the clinic come for medical check ups and check that the health records are up to date.

For any school trip, the teams leave with a first aid kit.

In high school, sex education courses following the French Ministry of Education program are provided to students.

Civil liability is compulsory and will be requested at the start of the school year. It is imperative that one of the parents can be contacted at all times for better care of children in the event of a health problem at school.

Sick children should not come to school (risk of contagion, discomfort, fever …). If the child has a fever, it is often a sign of a contagious disease. By not sending your child to school, it will limit its spread.

Pupils are also encouraged to use fresh water throughout the day from drinking machines.

 

Coronavirus in Southeast Asia

 

The LFIR is in close contact with the French Embassy in Myanmar, the Ministry of Sports and Health, the medical services and the AEFE, regarding the evolution of the situation about the Covid-19 virus.

Remote learning was implemented to guarantee the safety of students, their families and LFIR staff, following recommendations from the authorities. The teams are ready to welcome face-to-face classes as soon as the situation allows.

A reception protocol covering all the measures taken within the establishment has been drawn up internally for the start of the 2020 school year.

To learn more about our remote learning program, contact the Secretariat at secretaire@lfir.org.

 

Pollution protocol

Since January 2020, a Pollution protocol has been helping to determine the pollution thresholds (AQI and PM2.5) from which the teams adapt their activities (sports, according to students at risk …). It was developed from surveys of two locations in Rangoon and measurements made by our own device. Even if this is a crucial question, it is clear that the pollution levels are relatively low (in comparison with the Asia zone), this being particularly true in the districts where the two campuses are located.

 

Security

 

The AEFE network to which the LFIR belongs puts security among its priorities. To this end, a company specializing in the prevention and management of intrusion risks in schools has been commissioned by the Agency to come and train staff and students on the Intrusion-Attack risk.

In close collaboration with the security services of the French Embassy in Myanmar, the LFIR updated the PPMS (Individual Security Plan) for each campus. These documents give instructions to all personnel concerning all risks (fire, earthquake, intrusion, etc.). Exercises are held regularly every year.
