A GROUP, concerned about events in certain schools, has suggested that teachers wear uniforms.

At the 2015 Sibanika Uthando Teachers Prayers and Motivation Gala Dinner, Shaida Mahomed, from Isamkelo Sethu said violence in schools could be prevented if people come together and supported teachers in every sphere.

Isamkelo Sethu hosted the event for teachers in December.

Mohamed, the co-founder of Isamkelo Sethu said they have embarked on a research which pointed out some of the things that are stirring evil deeds in schools.

“We are currently working on organising a special event for KZN teachers as we have seen the need to conduct such an event. As Christians we have come together to make an effort to change all the things that are destroying our schools.

“Violence in schools, murder of teachers and lack of communication has become a habit in our schools. We suggest to the Department of Education that teachers wear uniforms. The white shirt, black or grey trousers and black skirt gave respect in our days. Casual wear is unprofessional. Some teachers don’t know how to wear proper clothes and some of their outfits are revealing and inappropriate,” said Mahomed.

Mahomed said that teachers should also wear name tags as this will bring a sense of respect, pride, dignity and professionalism.

“With the planning of the event we will call on our few local churches to assist in prayer. We believe that if we work together and persevere in God’s name, all will happen. In doing that we are looking for sponsorship in the form of lights, stage, tents, screens and entertainment, in order to make the event successful,” said Mahomed.

Those who would like to sponsor the event can call Mahomed­ on 078 799 5471.
