Gauteng pupils urged to speak out about problems
21 September 2012
The Gauteng education department is encouraging pupils who need to talk to someone about their problems to phone Lifeline.
This follows yesterday’s tragedy at Springs Girls High, where a grade 10 learner was discovered hanging in a room attached to the school hall long after school hours.
Department head Boy Ngobeni says an independent investigation will probe the circumstances surrounding the girl’s death.
A team of psychologists will visit the school today to assist learners and teachers affected by the tragedy.
