Parents warned about man who followed student
Fairfield School in Levin has warned the community after a female student was followed by a man as she walked home last week.
The school said it had been advised by police to remind students about safe practices for coming to school and returning home.
The incident involved a senior student who felt uncomfortable about a man who appeared to be following her and was trying to talk to her on October 25.
Other schools in the area have been advised.
Parents and caregivers are asked to take the time to discuss student safety, especially if students are walking to and from school on their own.
