A concerned teacher advised Grade 12 learners to put dating on hold. She said there is nothing fashionable about dating in matric.

@teenlifecoach_lebodube uploaded a video on TikTok giving the pupils advice. Being a teacher herself, she sees a lot of kids who have started exploring. But what's sad about that exploration is that it affects schoolwork.

She specifically spoke about dating, saying matriculants do not have to add the stress of dating on their plate, they have enough pressure to work towards varsity and study for trials and finals.
