Zanoxolo James, a local young teacher at PJB Cona Primary School in Worcester, uses drama therapy to keep his students happy and motivated to learn.
Like most kids from townships, Zanoxolo's pupils come from poor backgrounds, and I know from experience that when there is nothing to look forward to at home, school becomes a welcome escape.
Therefore, I believe, educators who teach in these urban areas have a greater responsibility of fulfilling many roles, becoming councilors, friends, and even parents to each child.
By using drama therapy, Zanoxolo helps his pupils to forget about the troubles awaiting them at home for a while.
