Tackling bullying in schools
Mogwase – Officers from SAPS Mogwase visited learners at Makoba Secondary School in Magong Village on Tuesday 31 August as part of their school safety programme.
Sergeant Kabelo Madisa of Mogwase SAPS, as well as representatives from the Department of Social Development, talked to learners about the dangers of bullying and using drugs.
Madisa encouraged learners to speak up about sexual abuse of any form and to be vigilant. He also urged victims of sexual abuse to inform their parents or guardians so that such cases are reported to the police.
Mrs Ramantsi from the Department of Social Development pointed out that bullying had no place in school or anywhere else. She added that bullying often results in a low self-esteem among affected learners and could also result in some of them staying away from school.
