‘Schoolgirls carrying beer to class’

THE Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) has expressed concern over the increasing reports of young girls carrying alcoholic beverages in their drinking bottles when going to school.
YMCA Copperbelt regional co-ordinator Sharon Chisanga said in an interview yesterday that so far her office has received 15 cases of young girls drinking beer at school.
“One of the parents came here to report that their daughter came back home drunk from school. We did an investigation and actually found out that there are a lot of girls who carry alcohol to school in their drinking bottles,” Mr Chisanga said.
She urged school authorities to be vigilant and monitor the activities of pupils in school.
Ms Chisanga also appealed to parents to check what items their children carry to school.
