It was shocking to read "Grade 10 girl attempts suicide after being refused enrolment" (January 17).

It is bad enough that the school is throwing her out but that her father was discouraging her is even worse.

It is important that parents make their offspring's education their priority .

Drugs are easily obtained by pupils . The substance abused most by pupils is alcohol, followed by cigarettes and dagga.

Every day, parents should monitor their children's homework.

Former basketball player Michael Jordan says : "If you're trying to achieve something, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." - Lenah Lesala and Khanya Sigcau, Johannesburg
