Unchain the Plain mentorship programme hosted the Mitchell’s Plain Social Crime Unit and Counter Assault Team of the presidential protection services at Westridge High School.
They spoke to the students on how they can determine their destiny and the influence gangsterism has on young people, to name a few, said Juven Rittles, from Unchain the Plain. They split into smaller groups to engage with the officers at the gathering on Tuesday April 20.
Edgar Magaar, Westridge High School principal said the boys were attentive and they found the information helpful.
“They were thrilled with it and eager to listen to the information shared, especially when the officers shared their life stories. We would like to have them again and include the girls as it can benefit them as well. This is a positive and good thing,” he said.
