Note to Pupils:

Who is a Stranger?

A stranger is someone you do not know. It could be a person you have never seen before or someone you are not familiar with. Strangers may not be part of your family, friends, or people you regularly meet.

How to Attend to Strangers or Relate With Them:

  1. Stay Cautious: Always be aware of your surroundings. If someone you don’t know approaches you, stay cautious and alert.
  2. Keep Distance: Maintain a safe distance when interacting with strangers. Avoid getting too close, especially if you are alone.
  3. Do Not Share Personal Information: Never share personal details like your home address, phone number, or school name with strangers. This information is private and should only be shared with trusted adults.
  4. Say No Politely: If a stranger asks you to do something that makes you uncomfortable, say no politely and walk away. Trust your instincts.
  5. Seek Help from Trusted Adults: If a stranger makes you feel uneasy or if you need assistance, find a trusted adult immediately. This could be a teacher, a family member, or another responsible person you know.
  6. Don’t Accept Gifts: Avoid taking gifts or treats from strangers. Politely decline and inform a trusted adult about the encounter.
  7. Use Safe Routes: Stick to well-known and safe routes when walking or going places. Avoid isolated areas, especially when alone.
