Teacher Left With Injury After Being Assaulted By Primary School Pupil

A South African teacher was left bloodied after being assaulted by a grade 4 pupil from Sakhile Primary School in Heidelberg, Gauteng.

According to Gauteng’s basic education spokesperson Steve Mabona, the grade 4 pupil threw a pencil case toward the teacher, thereby injuring her.

The teacher was treated at a local hospital and discharged the same day.

“It is alleged that a grade 4 learner threw a pencil case towards an educator while she was busy at her table. Unfortunately, it hit her in the face.

“We can confirm that she is recuperating at home. Our employee wellness officials are in constant liaison with the educator for necessary support,” Mabona said.

The police were reportedly called in but the school said the matter will be handled by its governing body.

However, the pupil has already been suspended, as it was further gathered that the matter will be heard after November 20.

“Learner ill-discipline will not be tolerated in our environment, which must always be conducive for teaching and learning,” Mabona said.
