PUPILS PUNISHED WITH PRISON VISIT


WHAT will the future look like if you carry on with an unruly life?

To answer this question, 60 pupils from Tlakula and Kenneth Masikela high schools were taken on a tour of Nigel Prison in Ekurhuleni.

The pupils were caught with weapons and drugs when police raided the school.

KwaThema police spokeswoman Constable Media Khoza said they also received complaints from teachers about aggressive pupils.

“We don’t want schools to turn into war zones,” she said.

The pupils were shown the prison and spoke to inmates and wardens.

The tour was harsh for the pupils – some of them were led to tears by the experience.

“The pupils were discouraged by the cost of crime.

“They changed their behaviour by the time they left the prison.”

Khoza said the programme is run in partnership with the department of education and is ongoing.

Education spokesman Steve Mabona said: “We strip away the glamour of crime by showing pupils the inside of prison.”
