Diepsloot SAPS Social Crime Prevention and Communication have, this morning at 09:00, visited Muzimohle Primary School, in extension 2, to address grade 7 learners on effects of bullying; road safety tips and to be cautious of strangers who offer them lifts.
Constable Jenny Morata, when she took to the podium, she sensitised the learners about the bad effects of bullying. She further encouraged them not to bully one another as this can lead into some learners bunking school.
Learners were also advised to exercise caution when crossing the roads. We have had incidents of children who were knocked by fasting moving vehicles when crossing or playing in the streets. Through this talk, we believe that learners will at all times be observant when crossing the roads in order to avoid further casualties.
Last on the items discussed, was about strangers who are offering lifts to children. Learners, particularly girls, were warned about dangers of getting into cars of strangers as they can easily end up being victims of crime. These are among the topics that we are going to address during schools talks in all schools around Diepsloot.
Safety of children is our priority as the police and we’ll ensure that learners are constantly sensitised about safety tips and other crime related matters affecting them.
