Three armed men entered the Dassenhoek High School, robbed learners and teachers of their valuables.

One learner from the school who tried to fight back ended up being stabbed three times in his face as he was refusing to give up his cellphone.

This spilled over to other learners and teachers who were at close range when this happened. It has been reported that four learners were stabbed by these men.

One of the victims said that he fears going back to school as he/she fears being finished off.

In a recent tweet KZN Education Minister, Kwazi Mshengu said:

The community of Dassenhoek has traced and caught two of the thugs who robbed learners of their valuables and stabbed four of them yesterday. They were handed over to the police in a proper, proper condition. We sincerely thank the community.

Mshengu expressed ho what has happened is a reflection of how bad things have become in some communities. 

A parent of one of the learners at the school, Gugu Kunene, shared in a live interview on ENCA the same sentiments as Education Minister when it comes to a collective effort needed even from community members to protect their local schools.

There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
