10 September 2006 - A deputy headmaster (who did not want to be named) said:
"One of our primary school children had a gun held to his throat and had his watch and pocket money stolen, while in another incident a mere 100m from our school, two men accosted and robbed another of our primary school children. While the other children saw the two men walking on either side of the pupil, they did not realise that the pupil was being robbed by the armed men. We are very, very concerned. These attacks are directed at the children in our community. We are aware that similar attacks have taken place at other schools in our community and also in Milnerton. We have handed all the information on the the attacks at our school to the local police forum which is setting up an emergency meeting with the police where headmasters and other senior teachers will raise their concerns. We are all hoping to put together an effective plan to ensure the safety of the children at our schools."
