CAPE TOWN - Management at Somerset College says it's too early to say when Marli van Breda will be back in the classroom.

The 16-year-old Marli van Breda was left critically injured in an axe attack which claimed the lives of her parents and older brother in January.

The teenager's other brother also survived the attack.

Police said significant progress has been made in their probe.

Somerset College eExecutive Head Meg Fargher said the teen has visited the school a few times to see her friends.

The 16-year-old was discharged from a rehabilitation facility last month.

Fargher said while van Breda is doing well, the young woman is still undergoing intensive therapy and needs more time to heal.

Investigators have reportedly gathered more than 130 pieces of evidence, but a statement from van Breda will be crucial in determining what happened in their home at the De Zalze Golf Estate.

Doctors said the teen is suffering from retrograde amnesia and cannot recall what happened on the night of the attack.
