Every Saturday, the Milal Korean Church & School conducts a group session for all students (ages 5 through to 18 years) , where they are taught their culture, religion and music by various professionals and teachers. 

Included in these assemblies is a new topic: who are the police and what do they do. In a series of visits, the students have been mentored by Superintendent Sam Fernandes and Community Response Unit (CRU) Constable Mir Lodi. CRU officers will continue to participate in sessions with the children to get to know them and teach them about the role of police and crime prevention.
