Diepkloof SAPS has a programme for mischievous learners who refuse to do their homework or participate in their school work and the ill-disciplined.

The programme was initiated to help convert learners who are considered problematic in the early stages. The programme is called Phasa Ngenkani, which is a Zulu term for Pass against all odds.

The Diepkloof Youth Desk finds complaints from the school, the station or from parents who need assistance in reinforcing discipline in their dear children.

The learner is then put through the programme where they are required go to the station every day after school to revise school work and do homework and assignments under supervision.

Phasa Ngenkani has been in its existence for more than three years now.

Zenzile Tshabalala of Diepkloof CPF said, “We have a problem of children who like gangsterism, drugs, and crime, we are doing our best to steer them the other way.”

The programme has already brought the change and the manifestations of the learners upgrading and passing very well at school.

“It is an honour to see that some of the things we do as an office produce positive people and results,” said Tshabalala.

The learners who are part of the programme were focusing on their school work in Diepkloof SAPS, like Caroline Candze (13,) who refused to do her homework so her mother brought to their programme.

Lehlohonolo Nakedi didn’t want to study at home, so his mother brought him to the station for the programme; he attested that “Being here really helps because I actually able to study and revise.”
