Peer educators network stemming school violence

School violence is on the increase in S.A and the peer educators networking has been called in by school principals to conduct sessions with scholars on how to deal with conflict in a constructive manner. This resulted from a recent incident in which a learner at Amakholwa high school was stabbed to death outside the school yard. Trauma counseling was done for the school and a prayer service with all local pastors on Tuesday 22 October for the families involved.
