And the teachers could make a bit of extra money seller it to the kids.

You give the supplies to the kids not the teachers, there is a charity doing just this in Dalaguete called Dalaguete charity.It was formed by expats and does a lot of help to those in need.Apart from a few donations I have nothing to do with this charity.

Two of my wife's family are teachers and I know that there is a genuine shortage of school paraphernalia.

Also some children walk long distances to school with nothing to eat for lunch, so lets count our blessings and spare a few peso's for the less fortunate. :thumbsup:

Yes have one less beer a day and feed a schoollkid.

Just had a grandmother stab to death her 18 month old granddaughter in Mississippi, is the United States safe?  Know your surroundings no matter where you are at.

18 month old do not think of their surroundings. Bad things happen every where.

 Certainly but it beggars belief that A Grandmother could do this,  The Parents obviously  thought the child was safe in the Surroundings  :ohmy:

Yes but its really a case of a unpredictable occurrence like the other day a school boy kills his mother and bury's her in the back yard over an argument about school grades or something like that so like in that case no one could say the surroundings had anything to do with it.

As for safety in Philippines, once again I have woken up to news of yet another fatal stabbing in London this morning, however this is now something mirrored across the UK much more often these days!

 

I suppose the fact it still makes the news means it's still not that commonplace.  

I try to be pragmatic about danger, you can be unlucky but if you do what you can to stack the deck in your favour then what more can you do?  My view is that shit happens everywhere - the question is how often and how deep is it?  I suppose another angle is how often are innocent people caught up in the crossfire, as it were, and do criminals resort to extreme measures?  In that respect, I think the Philippines and the UK are drawing.  

Ultimately, it's impossible to generalise - the safest part of the most dangerous country may be less safe than the most dangerous part of the safest country. And then there's that darn bad luck to factor in.  

Basic instinct is your trusted friend wherever you may be.

I suppose your right there, then again if all the bad news was reported every day in our own country, we would end up having a country near as bad as a third world country. Too many articles of bad news concerning murders and such, don't sell papers, there has to be a balance of good with the bad. Just the other day I caught my JT in my fly and the wife was trying to get the skin out of the zipper, the whole bloody neighborhood heard about it, ( no sympathy from the wife,)  but I didn't get a mention in the news, so you see, not all bad news is reported in print. :thumbsup:
