When you feel you need to report something
If there comes a time when you feel you have had something happen to you that you know or feel is wrong, possibly against the law or when you have been harmed by someone, then you have a right to have what ever it is made right. Telling someone who can help you, be it a close friend, parents, the police, a relative, a teacher, a supervisor or a doctor can be the best way to have what ever it is that is wrong, stopped and for you to be able to feel safe again. At the College, you can report your concerns to a Supervisor or directly to the College Manager. You can also report a concern directly to the Country High School Hostels Authority on 92645434 or to the Police.
There may also be a time that you feel you have done something wrong or against the law and feel caught up in a very uncomfortable, difficult or embarrassing situation and feel pressured or threatened by another person or others. Always remember you have rights, that what ever you feel you are doing wrong may not be as bad as what others may be doing to you. Go and tell someone. Getting through, what ever the situation is, will be far better than keeping things to yourself. Help is at hand.
