A group of 13 learners of the Letshego Primary School has proven that affirmation and discipline can bring about change in the life of their peers.

They were equipped with life skills to ensure they can take respon­sibility for their decisions in the future by partici­pating in a be­havioural problems programme at their school. This was facilitated by Joey Visser, a social auxiliary student worker of the University of South Africa (Unisa), between May and August.

It was presented to Gr. 6 and Gr. 7 learners, on issues like teen pregnancy prevention, bullying, substance abuse, crime and gangsterism, time management and decision-making.

According to Visser, all learners were awarded a certificate due to their enthusiasm displayed in the programme.
