I WOULD like to respond to and support the sentiments expressed in the Coastal Weekly by our SGB chair Professor Coopoosamy.

My name is Tiara Govender and I am a Grade 11 pupil at Buffelsdale Secondary School.

My primary school was Mitchford Primary. Based on misconceptions and popular belief that Prof Coopoosamy refers to I selected my secondary school. I spent a year in another secondary school and could not settle in because it did not live up to my expectations both in terms of discipline and academic work.

Because my parents were ex-students of Buffelsdale Secondary I decided to try the school. It is a decision that I do not regret.

Discipline of pupils is constantly monitored and the school provides a holistic education. I am able to compare and can say that the quality of teaching is amazing. The teachers bring integrity, respect and dignity into the classroom in their interactions with us.

The compassion and professionalism of the teachers constantly leaves me in awe.

Mathematics is generally a problematic subject, but at Buffelsdale my teacher is amazing. I thus endorse the sentiments of Professor Coopoosamy not to judge the school by popular false sentiments that are expressed by individuals that are not aware of the changed ethos at the school.
