CST has produced ‘CST Report’ keyrings with contact details to make it as easy as possible for people to report antisemitism or suspicious activity to CST. These keyrings have been distributed at a number of Jewish secondary schools from across the religious spectrum this year, with the intention that pupils have CST’s contact information when they need to report something. In several schools, we have also given short talks in school assemblies to explain the importance of reporting antisemitism and suspicious activity to CST and to Police.
CST has been focused on working with Jewish schools and parents to ensure all members of our Jewish community have access to the vital support and protection we offer. As well as launching the new publication A Parent’s Guide to CST at the Maccabi Community Fun Run earlier this summer, CST has been attending schools to work with parents, staff and teachers to explain the crucial work we do and what we can offer.
CST recently ran its first ever full training course at a Jewish secondary school. Twelve students successfully graduated as fully-fledged CST volunteers after attending a ten-week course at the Jewish Community Secondary School (JCoSS).
