Safety and security

Crime in Knysna and the rise of violence and gangsterism pose a serious threat to learners and educators. Security, accordingly, has become a priority in all schools, more so with the ongoing installation of e-learning technology.

Following an evaluation of their administration blocks and IT labs, schools have received security upgrades to secure new e-learning resources.

KILT piloted the introduction of visible security at Percy Mdala High School in 2018 with the introduction of safety officers. We believe that visible security is the best defence, and currently provide funding for stationing 18 safety officers at schools at greatest risk.

As a result, incidents of fighting have been reduced, as have fence-jumping, vandalism and bunking of classes.

“The extra safety officers allow teachers and learners to feel safe, while crime on the school premises has decreased greatly.”
