The Western Cape Education Department has called for a report on the number of late comers at schools in the City and the surrounding areas .
This comes after allegations that pupils visit the station deck to buy drugs before attending school.
However they did not find any substances as it is alleged that the activities pick up after school. The Department says that they have discovered that learners are bunking school and require more visible policing are required in this time.
The department has in this regard also urged parents to be more vigilant and monitor their children’s whereabouts and be on the lookout at all times.

Parents don’t always know what their children are up to during these hours but the department has asked that parents take an active interest in their children’s lives and also build a relationship with their children’s educators so that they are always on par with their children’s doings.

The Department urges parents to call the save our schools hotline  when they suspect that their children are abusing subsistence or for advice on how to deal with their children  to make use of the hotline on 0800 45 46 47.
