A Grade 11 pupil has been stabbed during a fight at Elspark High in Germiston, which led to the office of Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi releasing a statement saying he is “disturbed” by “yet another video footage depicting learners in school violence”.
Pupils “of Hoerskool Elspark were involved in a fight captured on a video footage” on Monday, the statement said.
The pupil, who has not been named, is reportedly recovering in hospital.

My lil bro was stabbed a number of times by fellow white learners at Hoërskool Elspark this morning. The school had the nerve to call the parent to come to school tomorrow morning because my brother is a witness to something big that happened at the school…#StateCaptureInquiry

“We are not sure what might have sparked the fight, however, this is strongly condemned. Necessary investigation and swift action against all perpetrators is required,” the statement by Lesufi’s office said.
Lesufi also announced that he would visit the school on Tuesday.
