More se­cu­rity guards needed at schools

Eyethu Baywatch - - LETTERS • IZINCWADI -

EV­ERY day we read or hear about heart­break­ing in­ci­dents hap­pen­ing in our schools.

Learn­ers stab­bing each other to death, as well as com­ing to school armed with guns.

It’s ob­vi­ous that the teach­ers are not safe in these sit­u­a­tions.

In most of our schools there is ei­ther only one or no se­cu­rity guard at the gate.

One se­cu­rity guard can’t man­age to search more than 200 learn­ers.

There should be at least four se­cu­rity guards de­ployed at all school gates.

If there is enough se­cu­rity in our schools there should be no pupil en­ter­ing the school premises car­ry­ing a dan­ger­ous weapon.
