JOHANNESBURG- Democratic Alliance in Gauteng has announced that Reiger Park High School in Johannesburg is returning to normality following sex scandal allegedly involving its principal.
DA education spokesperson in the province Khume Ramulifho said, “The DA has made an inquiry to deal with how such matters will be dealt with. Learners don’t have support. We believe there should be a hotline where the learners can report.”
“After the incident the department organised counselling and sent officials to the school to assist,” the school said. “A suggestion box where children dropped their issues has been created so we know what needs to be addressed as a school.”
The school said a new time table had been implemented as two educators who were implicated in the sex scandal had been summoned to the district office.
“It’s difficult but the parents do support us. There’s a confidence that we need to regain with parents,” the school added.
The school has expressed the incident did leave them with disruptions, “After the incident we had many disruptions. Slowly but surely we getting back to normality after 20 teachers were interviewed by the MEC’s lawyers for investigations.”
“Teachers that are trusted by learners were allocated with the responsibility to be told when there is a similar matter and they will blow the whistle.”
Extra classes have been made available to assist student and educators on the backlog that was experienced after the incident.
