A THEORY-BASED SCHOOL VIOLENCE PREVENTION PROGRAMME FOR HIGH SCHOOL LEARNERS IN THE TSHWANE SOUTH DISTRICT, GAUTENG PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA

This pilot evaluation determined that the programme effectively enhanced student knowledge and positively influenced attitudes towards violence, but did not appear to change behaviours
