School learners gambling next to school

Gambling (Spinning) is a problem that is happening to our school children. The problem started at school and after teachers spoken to the learners they decided to do that at the shop veranda next to the school. The shop is closed and the fence is damaged. They do that after school to the point where they leave after 16h00 and school knocks at 14h00.

This is disappointing because two adults joined the group of learners gambling while wearing school uniform. The problem is the learners are not safe and they might end up fighting and injure each other because of gambling. So the principal and the teachers need to call up a parent’s meeting to discuss and resolve the issue before it’s too late.
