In a spate of violence at schools in the
Western Cape MEC for Education Spokesperson Bronagh Cassy said that, the
Western Cape Education Department and the Ministry are concerned and have said
that there has been an increase but they are hoping to see a decrease.
As there have been 42 stabbing incidents
this year and 41 last years, however it is still a matter of concern as these
are places of learning.
They Department will be implementing new
programmes to help decrease the violence at schools.
They are also planning to supply schools
with metal detectors which will prove effective when used correctly and
behavioural programmes and courses to help them deal with conflict and also
help with recognising those learners who
are at risk.
