These have led to deaths, injuries, destruction of property and a number of schools being closed indefinitely.The study was done in four (4) secondary schools within the Central Division of Machakos District. The sample included fifteen (15) teachers, foul' (4) principals and one hundred and twenty (120) students. Questionnaires and interviews were the two research instruments.
