What do we really talk about when we talk about safety in schools? This is a question that lingers year after year as we take part in ensuring that our children grow up as young learners equipped for the challenges of the 21st century. From the school grounds to the playground equipment and student
transportation vehicles, every detail of  school's environment must be well-planned and established with the student community's safety in mind. Open spaces that increase and ease how students go from one point to another must be planned out with everyone in mind, including those with special needs like ramps and elevators for those on wheelchairs.



Far too often, safety is associated with the physical aspects, such, at certain points, we tend to
forget that the modern age has brought about new dangers for our children that we might not
expect. Bullying among school age children, for instance, has been a problem in school
settings, given the imbalance in terms of power relationships between students, and even
among teachers.


As defined, bullying is an unacceptable form of repeated verbal, physical, and social behavior
that causes both physical and psychological harm towards a victim. This can happen within the
school and even outside it, especially if such acts are done through online means, or what is
called cyberbullying. It takes many forms and can sometimes go on undetected, especially if the
victim is given threats. It is important to be able to identify and prevent incidents of bullying from
going on unnoticed, and parents and educators alike must stay vigilant about these issues.

Worldwide, the stance against bullying in schools has come at the forefront of children's rights,
and hence, it is a pressing concern for schools. The task of securing a safe learning
environment for our children is an important tenet of the Whole Child approach, one that
continues to develop approaches for intervention based on child and adolescent development
and learning theories which help mend relationships and provide caring and loving
environments for children.

At REX, we believe that when it comes to ensuring the safety of our children, persistence is key.
Proactive and preventive policies to address the safety needs of the student community must be
put in place, increase awareness through campaigns, and an effective understanding of the role
of everyone from students, to the staff, and to the teachers in shaping positive relationships
within the community. This means that each student should feel valued, respected, and cared
for equally, all motivated to learn, grow, and face the challenges of the 21st century, in a space
where they could feel both safe and secure.

You might be searching the internet because you need to pass an upcoming drug test. Then, this article will guide you on what you can do especially if you are going to undergo a urine drug test.

How Do You Pass a Drug Test?

If you read the articles on the internet, you may have to do some things such as exercise regularly, eat fruits and vegetables, stop smoking weed, drink plenty of fluids, and a lot of other homemade solutions. These methods can detoxify your body if your drug test is 30 days away. However, if you are in a rush and want to know how to clean your system from drugs as soon as possible, then some of the methods will not work.

Flush Toxins in 24 Hours?

If you just have to live a healthy lifestyle for the next 24 hours, then the bad news is it’s not enough to flush out marijuana or cocaine from your system. You might have read tons of websites claiming that the drugs can leave your system in 24 hours if you drink their products.

Some of the Homemade Solutions That Can’t Flush Toxins in 24 Hours

1. Niacin
2. Diuretics
3. Gallons of Water
4. Creatine Pills
5. Certo Drugs
6. Vitamin B2 or B12 Only
7. Cranberry Juice
8. Vinegar
9. Zinc

A Word about Some of the Home Remedies



If you rely on cranberry juice to pass a drug test, then you are putting yourself at risk. Although cranberry has a lot of antioxidants and is a natural diuretic, it will still need at least one month for the entire THC to be flushed out from your system. Cranberry juice alone won’t make your entire system clean from drugs. You have to factor in daily exercise, a balanced diet, and quitting marijuana for at least a month. You can read more information about cranberry juice in this link here.

When it comes to vinegar, this homemade remedy can lower the pH levels of your urine. The test administrator might think that you have tampered with your urine and you might have to produce another sample under a watchful eye. In addition to this, drinking vinegar can give you unnecessary diarrhea if you are not careful.

Niacin has produced a lot of online buzzes because it is said to detoxify the liver from THC. However, there are not enough studies to support these claims. Therefore, relying on niacin to pass a drug test is a very risky business. Niacin does not necessarily break down the fat cells which contain THC metabolites. The primary job of niacin is to break down the fat that enters your body through the food that you eat.

The truth is that there’s no magic pill that can clean the toxins from your body in 24 hours. Marijuana contains a crystalline compound called Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC which is fat-soluble. This means the THC metabolites will combine with the fat from your body. You can remove the fats through excess sweating from exercise or through your urine. However, this is not advisable if you have a drug test coming up in 24 hours.

Your body will work at a certain rate and squeezing the toxins from your kidneys, cells, and liver is next to impossible. It is very possible to speed things up. However, if you have less than 7 days, you need something stronger. The detoxification process takes about 14 days. It can be longer if you are a heavy marijuana user.

You can also read a lot of online articles why zinc, Certo, a gallon of water, creatine pills, Vitamin B12 or B2, and diuretics alone won’t help you pass a drug test. What you need is an alternative that can give you a 100% guarantee that you will pass.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay in Your Body?

Generally, the cannabis’ detection time can be unpredictable and diverse. You can read more about cannabis on this website: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effects_of_cannabis. There are certain factors that will determine how fast the THC levels are flushed from your system. These factors can include your overall health, your body type, weight, metabolism, the frequency of use, drug tolerance, and your diet.

The Following are the Detection Times Based on the Frequency of Your Weed Usage

•    1 Time Use – Detectable for 5 to 8 Days
•    2-4 Times a Month – Detectable for 11 to 18 Days
•    2-4 Times a Week – Detectable for 23 to 35 Days
•    5-6 Times a Week – Detectable for 33 to 48 Days
•    7 Days a Week – Detectable for 49 to 63 Days

So, if you have taken weed in the past 24 hours, the great news is that there are stronger detox formulas that can help you pass your urine drug test. You can use a permanent detoxification program such as cleansing pills. These pills will enable you to remove weed from your system as fast as possible.

Other Alternatives

There are products in the market such as Toxin Rid and many other alternatives that can help you flush out THC metabolites from your system. You can also buy a detox kit to and make sample laboratory tests at home. This way, you will know if you will have a good idea of the results of the drug test after you take the detox formula. When it comes to Toxin Rid, you will get the benefits of three components such as the pre-rid capsules, detox liquid and dietary fiber that are very beneficial to your body. The capsules alone can contain herbs, vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and diuretics that are strong enough to dilute the THC metabolites from your system.

If you want to know more information about how you can get hold of effective products that will enable you to pass a drug test, you just have to go to the right website. You can read a lot of positive reviews about strong detoxifying products that can make you healthier in the long run. You won’t have to risk going to jail or losing the job of your dreams because you can pass your test through these alternatives.

In most countries, you are required to wear a motorcycle helmet when you are taking a ride on a motorcycle. Wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle increases your chance of survival in case there is an accident. Wearing a helmet can also greatly reduce the risk of fatal head injury that could lead to permanent injury to the brain or life threatening.

Accident statistics have shown that helmets do save lives. A large percent of motorists involved in fatal motorcycle accidents where those found not wearing helmets. Seasoned motorists know the importance of wearing a helmet whenever they are on their rides. It should be the responsibility of every motorist to wear a helmet whether it is mandatory or not in their country to protect their own lives. The helmets should meet the safety standards required by the Department of Transportation.



When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, there is nothing to shield or protect his or her head from the impact of the fall or crash. Even a minor knock or blow on the head could cause concussion or a traumatic brain injury, resulting in permanent head injuries or even death. Wearing a helmet also helps to protect injuries to the eyes, teeth, and face. Helmets can protect you from flying particles such as dust particles, gravels, bugs, and other objects you could come in contact with while on your rides.


Wearing a helmet can keep the wind or sun out from your eyes to enable you better vision and focus on your ride. The helmet also helps to buffer the noise from the wind to prevent distraction from your concentration on the road and the surrounding. Every motorcyclist should buy and wear a good quality riding helmet to increase their own safety.

Whether you are looking for full face helmets or open face cruiser helmets, always look for a helmet with a thermoplastic or reinforced composite shell like polycarbonate. Another feature to look for is the impact absorbing liner which not only gives comfort to your top head but also absorbs impact in times of crashes to protect your head from severe injuries. The next feature to look for is the chin strap to keep the helmet properly and securely strapped. Also remember to check that the helmet meets the safety standards of the Department of Transportation.

If you are thinking of getting a new helmet, there is a wide selection of good quality helmets available in your local stores or online stores. Sometimes motorcycle accessories offer best deals on street motorcycle helmets from top brands featuring a stronger design and with the latest protective materials.

When choosing motorcycle helmets, make sure the helmet fit snugly around your head and that you feel comfortable wearing the helmet without feeling any uncomfortable tight spots. These uncomfortable tight spots could distract you from your concentration during your ride. Another feature is the adjustable ventilation constructed to allow air flow to avoid fog from blurring your vision. Helmet without ventilation can be very uncomfortable due to the heat and sweat especially during hot weather.

The fourth industrial revolution changed the dynamics of living: we see the convergence of physical, digital, and biological dimensions emerge, powered by new technologies and platforms that connect us in new ways. An era of limitless possibility and opportunity, the 21st century is seen not only as a time of rapid advancement in technology but also a period where continuous improvements for learning and knowledge sharing has become a primary concern. Teaching tools, assets, and content offerings and evaluation have undergone change and disruptions to raise the bar of excellence higher to comply with a globally competitive horizon.  

Last 2015, the Department of Education released a policy which sought to reinforce the importance of comprehensive methods of student assessment, a move which works to complement the then newly implemented K to 12 program. DepEd Order No. 8 mandated educational institutions to make classroom assessment an integral part of the curriculum. Assessment helps keep track of learners’ progress, induce self-reflection and personal accountability, as well as enhance profiling systems to help students learn better within a dynamic environment. The assessment of an individual learner´s performance is no longer limited to the academic portfolio but has since shifted to include an ongoing process of identification, gathering, organization, and interpretation of qualitative and quantitative sets of information. These new categories are designed to highlight how and what learners know, and more importantly, what they can do with it in practical, real-world situations.

With this, the mixing and matching of skills from thorough evaluation processes could be an answer to the growing demand of a more diversified audience, moving towards better customization and personalization of education. This integrated method is centered on the student not only as a learner but more so as a whole child, a dynamic person. 

TYPES OF CLASSROOM ASSESSMENT

In this framework, there are two levels of classroom assessment. First is formative assessment which is an in-process evaluation of students’ performance during a lesson, unit or course. This type of assessment helps educators identify the strengths and weaknesses of learners, which in turn is vital in improving lessons, modules, instructional techniques and academic support provided to improve a students’ learning experience.

The second level is called summative assessment. Usually provided after a unit or period of learning is completed, this next step helps describe the degree or standard reached by an individual learner after a certain period in the educational calendar. The results are recorded and used to report on the learner´s achievement, based on the rubrics followed by the institution´s program. These forms of evaluation aim to heighten the potential of every learner, guiding them to face the challenges of the real world by providing concrete measures or valuation for each learner´s unique learning capacities and cognitive processes.



REX Book Store’s Assessment Tools for the 21st Century

In line with this renewed thrust in holistic education and its campaign for helping raise a Whole Child, REX Book Store has come up with various Assessment tools carefully researched and designed to enable, elevate, and engage learners and educators in expanding learners’ potential in the 21st century.

Some of these new Assessment tools include ACES+, an internationally benchmarked, outcome-based, Partnership for 21st Century Learning Skills aligned standard-based assessment program which helps measure the holistic development of a learner. Guided by the Whole Child Approach, this program covers the evaluation of a learner's cognitive and non-cognitive ability, knowledge dimension, levels of understanding, as well as providing guidance for critical and practical 21st-century skills. The program aims to help improve a learner's self-efficiency, interests, and general attitude towards problem-solving and curiosity.

With an evaluation and support system designed in this direction, REX Book Store hopes to help stakeholders of the learning process to take their potentials to the next level.  Through standard features such as reporting and review for students, reporting for parents; reporting, guidance, as well as additional instructional support for teachers, with a comprehensive report and mentoring guide for educational administrators, a more distinct and targeted way of teaching could hopefully be implemented to form the whole child. 

Educators are called to raise the bar in teaching by making sure learners are given a holistic form of learning that would allow them to function at their best as they interact with individuals and communities. Assessment exercises and tools then play a significant role in education today. Through a holistic approach to classroom assessment, schools and institutions would be able to evaluate and facilitate higher-order thinking skills and learning processes that would help groom the present generation of young learners for what the future challenges us to solve today.
