Ms Cepada said that union members are reporting back that while there are fantastic kids in schools, sometimes issues do arise due to violence or aggression.

"The failure to implement the code of behaviour that is in place, the failure to have proper health and safety procedures within a school".

Mr Boateng on behalf of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) donated 46 pieces of student mattresses and other items to the affected students and urged them to be disciplined and obedient to the authority of the school to enable them to successfully complete their courses.
