COASTAL KZN
TVET COLLEGE
- Nozibele Tshlalana, Student

REPORT: 

Situated close to the University of KZN the Durban Campus is one of 12 campuses that make up the Coastal KZN TVET College. The College was well prepared for the #NoExcuse event with chairs set up in the main hall and members of the SRC actively mobilising students to attend.

  • Mr. Ploza from student wellness and support extended a word of welcome to the students as well as the team, outlining the challenge of woman abuse particularly in the KZN province. He cited that young, impressionable girls were easily lured to popular clubs and pubs in the area and cautioned that those places were a haven for the abuse of most women in the community and surrounding areas.

  • Members of the SRC extended a word of thanks to the students and the team for the workshop. Levels of participation and enthusiasm were high.

  • 309 students signed the register, 111 questionnaires completed and returned, 37 pre- and post-surveys completed.

The workshop was amazing for me. The speaker knew what he was doing, I really enjoyed it. There are incidents whereby you are in a relationship and your partner hits you, and it is hard for the two of you communicate with your partner especially if he provides for you.
