Learners turned schools into wrestling


In a short space of time, since the past of the Easter weekend the education sector has experienced a huge unavoidable crisis over indiscipline learners’ behaviour particularly in Limpopo.

Several videos went viral over learners who assault, bully, discriminate and exchange fists in school premises.

This week alone there has been over three filmed incidents where school learners were physically fighting.

Recent incidents include one of two young girls believed to be sharing a boyfriend clapping, insulting, assaulting and bullying one another during teaching and learning period at Dinao Secondary School, Makurung village in Ga-Mphahlele.

One of the learners who filmed the incident said the two appealed to their classmates not to stop the fight.

Learners agreed no one deserve to be bullied or discriminated at school as everyone has the rights to education.

The other shocking incident emerged at Nthuba High School where another two young learners were fighting.

One learner was walking and the other one was attacking her from the back with hard tree branch.

While being beaten up she was constantly asked if she can feel the pain.

“Did you have an abortion?” the victim asked the perpetrator.

The perpetrator continued beating her up accusing the victim of naming and shaming in front of other learners that she had an abortion.

“I was not referring to you,” the victim said with crying voice.

Another unacceptable and horrific incident happened at Mbilwi Secondary School.

The late grade 10 learner was filmed being bullied at school and she later committed suicide.

“The victimised learner from Mbilwi is reported to have since passed away,” Limpopo education spokesperson Tidimalo Chuene said her department is concerned about the increasing number of bullying incidents at schools.

She however said the cause of death was unknown.

Meanwhile the department MEC, Polly Boshielo strongly condemned such incidents adding that education is a societal matter, therefore putting the responsibility on all of the affected stakeholders would ensure a safer learning and teaching environment.

“It is disturbing to witness this level of violent behaviour among young people. Bullying is wrong and will never be tolerated in our schools,” said Boshielo.
