"This area is a deep rural area, you wouldn’t expect such a thing to happen here.

We are disturbed by the news but we have dispatched our social workers to come and assist the family and they have identified some gaps within the family and we can see the family is destitute so we have provided psychosocial support and we will extend it to the school as well.”
