Bishops teacher: Several boys have been 'affected over a number of years', says school

More pupils have been "affected over a number of years" by the alleged "serious misconduct" of a female former Bishops Diocesan College teacher, the school says.
"We have confirmed that there have been several boys who have been affected over a number of years," school principal Guy Pearson said in a statement on Tuesday.
This follows the resignation of the female teacher who allegedly had a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old matric pupil.
The allegations have rocked the prestigious private Cape Town boys' school in Rondebosch after the Sunday Times reported that the pupil had also tried to break off the relationship.

Her Story: Adelaide Tambo

Adelaide Frances Tambo (nee Tshukudu) was born on 18 July 1929 in Top Location, Vereeniging, in the Vaal Triangle. Tambo attended the St Thomas Practising School in Johannesburg and Orlando High. She worked as a nurse at the Pretoria General Hospital and at an old people's home in London.

Adelaide Tambo’s political life started at the age of 10 after a raid by the police, following a riot in Top Location, Vereeniging. A police officer had been killed, and Adelaide's ailing grandfather, aged 82, was among those who were arrested and taken to the town square. There the old man collapsed and Adelaide had to sit with him until he regained consciousness.

Life Skills - Build ecosystems that support your vulnerabilities

Vulnerability is like a stew that gets cooked in a dark corner, everyone has
their own pot to cook yet no one ask how long the pot has been cooking for.
Nobody stand up proudly to taste the stew, only few people knowns about
the main ingredients and it shall remain as that. After sometime the short trips
to the dark corners start to take a tall on us, we disguise it with an external
feature. Everyone celebrates the new accomplishment yet they know that it
is a plaster to the cracks. Eventually the plasters gives-in, the fire is too much
to tolerate, every little thing is destroyed. Shame and fear takes over, the
circle of blame and regret gets larger.

THE AUDIT: HOW DO WE DEAL WITH SA’S YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS?

It's sometimes hard to find words that can effectively address the mental health crisis we are facing as the youth of South Africa.
Much has been said and written about the state of mental health in our country, and young people have implored the state, private entities and communities to prioritise mental health, particularly that of the youth.

During this Mental Health Awareness Month, and in particular on World Mental Health Day on Thursday, I’d like to reflect on the experiences of many young people in South Africa today by relating something of my own struggle with mental illness.

In a number of developing countries, and regions of developing countries, where significant reductions in stunting have been achieved, Community Healthcare Workers (CHWs) have been central to these countries’ stunting reduction strategies.
