About Safety Of Students

We have from time to time talked about the safety of teachers, particularly following videos of school bullies assaulting teachers circulating widely on social media. Today the tone will have to change following the release of a video allegedly taken by a senior official at one of the Kgatleng schools showing a student in great pain, rolling on the ground and crying out hysterically for their mother.

They were clearly showing signs that they were in distress. There are voices of adults in the background with one of them filming the student. The silhouettes of the adults in the video imply they are watching as the student rolls in pain taking guesses, with one saying the student must be under the influence of drugs while the other assumes that the student must be drunk from modaefok. Let's for a minute entertain their assumptions that the student had indulged in some alcoholic beverage.

 Do these alleged teachers and the senior official, shooting the video think it is fine for the student to grovel in pain? The voices in the video call out to the student to give out their mother's phone number, yet it is clearly visible that the child is having difficulty breathing! When children are with their parents at home, it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that their children are safe from harm. When children are in school, it is expected that the teachers and senior officials ensure that learners are safe from harm. Shockingly, this video reveals otherwise.
