The vuilbek video, which was taken at Edward Primary School in Clarke’s Estate last week, has gone viral on social media with parents saying the unruly children should be moered.
According to a source at the school, who asked not to be named, the terrified female teacher made the video to show the principal how the laaities threaten her and other pupils.
The source says: “The video was taken last week Wednesday. Those laaities are always ombeskof and the principal doesn’t want to hear about them.
“On that day, they tried to go into a Grade 4 classroom where they wanted to hit and stab another learner.
“They were found with a knife and scissors and she [the teacher] made that video as they stood outside the classroom and made threats.”
In the video, one of the three boys is seen shouting through a broken window, encouraging the teacher to make the video.
“Juffrou maak die video. Ek is niks te doen met daai video nie. Jou ma se p***! Julle is in julle ma se p***,” he says as he is joined by two friends who also level threats and show gang hand signs used by the 28s.
The laaitie then tells the teacher to share the video on Facebook and continues to threaten a child in the classroom, saying: “Jy daar in die hoek, ek wil vir jou aanvat. Ek gaan jou gevriet jump! Jy is in jou ma se p***”.
One of the boys is then seen grabbing his crotch.
The source says the boys are known as “skool skollies” who frequently behave in this manner.
“They go on like that all the time and nothing is being done. It just came out now because there is a video. They are skool skollies, but there is almost nothing we can do.”
Western Cape Education Department (WCED) spokesperson, Bronagh Hammond, says the pupils have received disciplinary letters.
“The one learner is currently suspended, but continues to attend school,” she says.
“The learners involved have received disciplinary hearing letters and their parents and guardians have been contacted.
“The threats against the teacher is completely inappropriate and disrespectful.”
She says the pupils, who are in Grades 4 and 7, have a history of ill-discipline and the department has now arranged for psychological intervention.
“The school safety committee and management team has also engaged with the police. The WCED will continue to support the school. The educator has received in-house debriefing and support and an offer for further support has been made.”
