ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Despite all our efforts to teach life skills to our learners, we still get learners that fall pregnant, use drug substances, drop out of school and have no future plans. The aim of this study was two-folded. Firstly, it aimed to determine some factors identified by our learners and educators from their own experience that make our learners vulnerable to contract HIV/AIDS. The identification of these factors will give our school’s educators and broader community an indication on how to act and help our learners to live a responsible life. Secondly, the study aimed to give our school and others through literature studies some guidelines to address the problems experienced by the school and learners.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Ongeag al ons pogings om leerders lewensvaardighede aan te leer, is daar nog steeds leerders wat swanger raak, dwelms gebruik, die skool vroeg verlaat en geen toekomsplanne het nie. Die doel van hierdie studie is tweeledig. Die studie poog eerstens om faktore te identifiseeer wat deur die leerders en opvoeders genoem was wat leerders kwesbaar maak om MIV/Vigs op te doen. Tweedens, word daar aan die hand van literatuurstudie sekere riglyne neergelê aan ons skool en andere om die probleem wat deur die leerders veroorsaak en ondervind word, aan te spreek.
