Psychologists to be deployed in Gauteng schools marred by violence – SABC News

Gauteng’s education department says it will send psychologists to two schools marred by violence in the East and West Rand.

A man was shot dead at Kagiso Middle School when he attacked a teacher on Friday.

On the East Rand, three men have gone on trial for the fatal stabbing of a Year 10 student at Geluksdal Secondary School in Brakpan.

The case was adjourned until next week on Wednesday.

Department spokesperson Steve Mabona says: “We started Geluksdal this morning. As schools were suspended in the area, we were unable to manage this process. Our professionals will be back again tomorrow to provide this consultation. In Kagiso, this process began in the morning. It started with both the students and the teachers. The wellness program was there to serve them.”

The department has also expressed concern over the spate of violent attacks and has since pledged to beef up security.
