A footage taken inside the classroom went viral on social media over the last 24 hours. The learner in question – who attends Three Rivers Secondary School – was seen leaving her desk in the middle of a lesson.
It’s clear that something had already transpired between the girl and the teacher. The latter was on her cell phone at the time, as the class was raucous from disruption.
The learner takes a large exercise book from her desk, approaches the teacher, and throws it straight at her. The video ends with classmates trying to calm things down, whilst the teacher exits the room.
The Gauteng Department of Education have been forced to investigate an incident involving a disgruntled high school student, and the teacher she abused.
