What’s the reality in South Africa?
Children are scared, hopeless, out of balance and living in constant fear of crime in their school, in their homes, in their communities AND in their country.
Cool@School is an organisation that wants to make a difference and to reach out and help. To all you youngsters out there … this is the place where YOU can speak out and get help.
We want to help build a generation of well-balanced, confident, fun loving, secure, disciplined, respectful children with good moral values and a high self esteem.
To do this, we need to educate our children with regards to the risks of crime, to empower them to work against crime, and to be able to adequately process the effects of crime and grief on their lives.
What we’re doing
We’re currently going from school to school doing a survey with the grade 8’s finding out their thoughts and feelings about life and school in general, including how crime has impacted on them.
Once this is complete the survey will be professionally analysed and specific areas of concern will be raised and discussed with each school.
Cool@School is NOW at Krugersdorp High School … watch out for where to next!
