With our early intervention and prevention campaign we visited Manqoba primary school to teach children about mental health and bullying.
Bullying incidents amongst learners are realities that have made, and continue to make news headlines internationally, and South Africa is not immune to such incidents. The phenomenon of bullying not only affects the bully and the victim, but also the school, parents, and communities in general. During tis program the social worker talks about factors that may be associated with bullying amongst learners in the school setting.
This can help to prevent school drop outs and serous mental issues later on in life.
