Primary Education


17-year-old Grade 7 student from Limpopo accused of bullying teachers expelled from school

It's never an easy decision to give up on your child particularly when it comes to his/her education but sometimes parents face these tough choices.

Parents of pupils at John Marubini Primary School in Phiphidi village, outside Thohoyandou, Limpopo, have expelled a year 17 pupil accused of bullying. The kid or rather the young man stands accused of not only bullying his "peers" but also teachers at school.

The young man was disruptive and was also demanding that he must be promoted to grade 8 instead of grade 7 which he is supposed to attend in 2022.

The aggrieved parents of John Marubini said they do not want the learner at the school anymore and he has subsequently been banned from entering the school premises. One parent who spoke to SABC on condition of anonymity said that even teachers are now scared of him.

She went on to say that the student sometimes embarrasses the teacher in front of students and if they decided to reprimand him, he will threaten to fistfight them once the school day is over.
