On 27 January 2020, Ms Coetzee (one of the school’s teachers) was busy locking up the school when a granny came in hysterical, looking for her granddaughter, who is a Gr 1 learner at the school. Ms Coetzee investigated the matter and called the Principal, Mrs Bekker, who immediately phoned Komani Police Station for guidance, as they could not send the granny away, knowing that the last place where her granddaughter was seen was at school.

Three police officials, namely Sgt Mqulo, Sgt Dimaza and Const Bhada arrived at the school within minutes. They proceeded to question a few of the learner's class friends' parents telephonically which helped to get a lead to follow, and where the child was found unharmed.

Southbourne Primary School would like to salute Komani police for the tremendous work they do for our school. Our police went all out when we desperately needed them. As the Southbourne Primary School community, we strongly believe in your professionalism. Remember that you have our support and respect.
Continue keeping Komani safe!

Tips for parents:

  • Make sure that your child knows who will fetch him or her from school;
  • communicate with your child’s transport at all times (don’t assume that your child has been fetched);
  • inform the school if the usual transport is not fetching the child; and
  • remind your child to never talk to strangers.

Komani, Eastern Cape
