“My son came home and showed me the video,” the dad says.
He explained it was being circulated on WhatsApp and TikTok among the pupils.

“There is another video and my son says they give you the first one then want you to pay for the second one.
“He didn’t ask how much because he did not buy it.
“I want to know where the teachers and monitors are because this was not even done skelmpies, it was done in the open for everyone to see.”

One user wrote: “Couldn’t they have used the school bathrooms, Joh of all places”.

Western Cape Education Department (WCED) spokesperson Unathi Booi confirms that they are aware of the video and says the matter is being investigated.
“The incident took place on the school grounds,” she says.
“Due to the learner’s identities being circulated widely, we will not be disclosing any personal information regarding the learners.
“The school is currently investigating the matter and a disciplinary process is being followed.”
Booi says counselling has been offered to the pupils, but warned against people sharing the video as it amounts to the spreading of child p0rn0graphy.
“We are calling on all learners to stop the spread of harmful and inappropriate videos by not sharing them on their platforms.
“There can be serious psychological implications for the learners that are being filmed and it could also have consequences for the learners sharing inappropriate content.”
