The session discusses appropriate protocols and elements that must be considered in order to conduct an appropriate investigation. One's obligation under the "rules of natural justice" and the Code of Professional Conduct will be discussed. The session will also discuss the school leader's role when police seek the opportunity to interview students at the school.
