Sans Souci Girls’ High has wished the pupil who was slapped during an altercation with her Afrikaans teacher “well on her academic journey” flowing her withdrawal from the school.
According to the Western Cape Education Department, the learner’s lawyers had officially written to the school requesting her transfer letter.
“The school has wished the learner well on her academic journey as she completes her high school career,” said department spokesperson Bronagh Hammond.
“The school has provided the transfer letter and the report for 2018,” she said.
After her appearance at the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, the pupil said she did not want to return to the school again.
However, at the time, her mother said she would decide later, as she needed to “first clear this up.”
The pupil’s mother also said she had been “advised” by the school principal to move her daughter to another school.
The teacher involved in the altercation made an appearance in court facing assault charges and her case was postponed until April 18 pending further investigation.
“Regarding the educator’s disciplinary process, the SGB are managing it, as the teacher is an employee of the SGB,” Hammond said.
