As we get ready to enjoy a well-deserved break there are other families who will not see the light in their lives for some time to come. It is with great sadness that I share the news about 2 learners in our district that were shot and killed last night while in their home.
They were both just innocent little souls that got caught up in something they had no control over. Both these children were from the same family and school - Grade 1 and Grade 3. Our prayers are with that family and every other family that is grieving the loss of a child today.
In the same message a Principal narrowly missed flying bullets as he was unlocking the gate to the school premises this morning. These are the people who are responsible for keeping our children safe and creating an environment in which they can grow and develop, yet they are the targets of the senseless mayhem currently going on. We need to put a stop to this! [more]
