Arrests made following protest, violence at Atlantis school
11 people have been charged with public violence for disrupting classes at the Saxonsea Primary School.
CAPE TOWN - Eleven people have been arrested and charged with public violence for disrupting classes at the Saxonsea Primary School in Atlantis.
A group of disgruntled parents blocked the entrance to the school yesterday. They're demanding the newly appointed principal be replaced. It's believed the school governing body wasn't consulted on the principal's appointment.
Spokesperson for the Western Cape Education MEC Jessica Shelver says: "The Western Cape Education Department is satisfied that the WCED did follow procedure and policy in correctly appointing the principal. Our Safe Schools division has arranged counselling because the situation traumatised some learners and teachers."
