Three Grade 8 pupils have been suspended from Fons Luminis Secondary School in Diepkloof, Soweto, for allegedly raping a fellow pupil on Friday.
The three were suspended on Tuesday morning, following a meeting between MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi, parents and members of the school governing body (SGB).
The three who have not been arrested were seen leaving the school premises accompanied by the parents.
The incident took place in De Deur, Vaal on Friday evening, during a school induction camp arranged for Grade 8 pupils only.
Lesufi said the purpose of the school trip was to inculcate the culture of the school into the Grade 8 pupils, where boys and girls were placed in separate rooms.
