The Gauteng Department of Education has dispatched its Psycho-Social Unit to MC Wailer Primary School in Alexandra North of Johannesburg, to provide counselling and trauma support for all affected learners and staff. This comes after learners allegedly discovered a human remains when fetching a soccer ball that was beneath the Grade 5 mobile classroom on Thursday Afternoon.
Police officials confirmed that the remains are human. The body has been removed from the scene and police indicated that an inquest will be opened.
“While we await further reports from the police regarding this matter, learning at the school will continue with necessary psycho-social support,” said MEC of Education Panyaza Lesufi.
