Four Grade 12 learners from Ocean View High School used the opportunity presented to them by a life orientation assignment to share with the Masinites their research on what is known as the silent emotional killer: RAPE.

They were tasked by their school to compile and share the topic with 50 people, and also give them questionnaires to answer based on the information shared with them.  They felt compelled to share the information they had with the Masinites in all grades, so they could learn about rape and know that SILENCE DOES NOT MEAN CONSENT!

Nothing was as inspiring as watching them confidently delivering their presentation; Janice (the Masiphumelele English FUNdamentals Tutor) was also thrilled to witness the quality of their delivery. The learners sat quietly, digesting the information passed on to them, listening to their fellow school-mates and when the time came, asking questions; I believe that was the best part,  we knew that they were engaging with the information. I can safely say that the learners left there with so much information on rape, thanks to the friendly presenters.

 

BIG UP MASINITES!!! With that confidence, you will go places!
