Applicants will be required to present their proposals at a Departmental Review Panel Meeting. The Department may request applicants to participate in further safety promotion activities. Institutions interested in conducting safety promotion activities during the June/ July holidays should complete an application on the prescribed form. Applications are invited for: December/January school holidays, 06 December 2017 – 16 January 2018.
