The Western Cape Department of Education said it views bullying in a very serious light and many cases of bullying go unreported.

MEC Debbie Schafer in a statement said the Safe Schools call centre last year received forty-five calls concerning bullying and nine so far this year.

MEC Schafer said any form of bullying can have dire consequences, which is why a quick response is needed.

Ministerial Spokesperson Jessica Shelver said parents are key to identifying behavioural change in their children which could be as the results of them being bullied. 

“We therefore appeal to parents to keep an eye on their child’s behaviour, if your child seems withdrawn or angry investigate the reasons for these changes and speak to the class teacher immediately." Shelver added.
