There are a number of students who still do not have locks on their lockers or do not have school locks. It is imperative that all boys have a lock on their locker to secure their property and also to have a school lock so that in case of an emergency that lockers have a school lock on them. Can I please ask that if a student does not have a school lock on their locker that this is rectified as soon as possible. Measures will be taken if this is not done within the next week. If there are any issues with this, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Canning - email@example.com
