23 January 2014

EMOTIONAL and domestic problems, which often contribute to ill-discipline among pupils, have prompted a principal to make a desperate plea to education officials for the return of school counsellors.

The call was made during a visit by Education Department officials and politicians to assess school readiness at schools, including Motherwell’s DDT Jabavu.

There, principal Bongin- kosi Gotyana said having an on-site counsellor would go a long way in helping to improve results.

The team also visited Vulumzi High School in Motherwell’s NU5.

The schools have become known as underperformers, resulting in parents removing their children and opting for better schools.
