Many schools in Botswana have reported a high level of indiscipline amongst the students. This is despite the existence of the Guidance and counselling programme in such schools. The study investigated strategies employed by schools to implement the Guidance and counselling programme. Through purposive and simple random sampling procedure, a total of 40 participants from two Junior Secondary Schools in Molepolole, Botswana were selected. The participants comprised the school management, Guidance teachers, regular teachers and the students across all forms. The study, which was a case study research, utilized semi-structured interviews, focus group discussions and interview guides for data collection. Using a constant comparison to analyse the data, the study revealed that the implementation of School Guidance and Counselling (SGC) in Botswana schools is clouded with multiple of constraints such as inadequate resources, limited trained personnel, and lack of involvement of other stakeholders.
