All children are vulnerable to violence, yet wealthy countries lag behind in global efforts to solve it.
Due to its multi-faceted nature, the elimination of violence in schools calls for the engagement of all members of the school community. The whole school approach to violence prevention attempts to achieve this, addressing school violence as a collective rather than individual challenge and involving the school community, parents, organisations and the local community
Safety at schools around the country remains a big concern. In Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, a Safer Schools Network was launched as a vibrant platform for schools to discuss safety issues and find ways how to make our schools a safe and learner-friendly environment for learners and teachers.
