Teachers at a Paarl-East high school in the Western Cape say the institution is directly affected by gangsterism in the community.
Charleston Hill High was forced to close for the day yesterday due to gang violence.
Western Cape Community Safety MEC Dan Plato is engaging with religious leaders, residents and government role players at the school this morning.
The school's acting principal Derrick Newman says the school is situated directly between Chicago and Magnolia; these are the areas that have been overwhelmed by gang fighting in recent weeks.
