CHILD Protection Week activities were held at Upington High School on Tuesday, where the Upington SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit addressed Grade 11 pupils on gender-based violence and femicide and bullying.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Omphile Masegela said the programme, which was also supported by the National Prosecuting Authority, Department of Justice, Department of Education and the ACVV, also informed pupils on how to protect their privacy on social media platforms.

“They were also educated about the difference between rape and statutory rape.”
