    The correct ways for children to carry chairs in school

    In an ideal world, children would not have to carry chairs at all. As we do, however, live in a world that is far from perfect, it is essential for teachers, parents and, of course, children to learn the correct ways for children to carry chairs.

    If your child was hurt at school because the school was in breach of this duty of care, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim on behalf of your child.
