Teacher dies while marking matric exams
The teacher from Hoërskool Centurion collapsed while marking the grade 12 Mechanical Technology papers.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says social workers have been dispatched to a matric exam marking centre in Pretoria for teachers who may need counselling, after one of the markers died there suddenly.
The teacher from Hoërskool Centurion collapsed on Wednesday while marking Grade 12 Mechanical Technology papers.
Lesufi says although his colleagues are still shocked, marking has not been affected.
"At this present moment it's a suspected heart attack, but we're waiting for the post-mortem results and whether the family are willing for us to release the name and information concerning the cause of death."
