The Gauteng Department has confirmed that a 15-year-old grade 8 pupil has been arrested at Eldorado Park Secondary School for pointing a gun at an educator in class.
The pupil was arrested by police on Thursday and charged with pointing a gun and possession of dangerous weapon (Black Powerline Gas Gun).
The department says the learner was released into his parents’ custody and is expected to appear in the Kliptown Magistrates Court on Friday.
Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says the SGB has suspended the learner and served parents with a notice of disciplinary hearing.
“We have adopted a zero-nonsense tolerance approach towards delinquents, and will demonstrate no mercy towards lawlessness in and around our schools. Learners are encouraged to refrain from acts of misconduct in our schools.”
