To: ALL STAFF MEMBERS.
You are hereby reminded of the South African Schools Act (1996) , section 10 which states:
Prohibition of corporal punishment
1. No person may administer corporal punishment at a school to a learner.
2. Any person who contravenes subsection (1) is guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to a sentence which could be imposed for assault.
Please be informed that if and when an incident is reported the SMT is instructed to immediately report the matter to the ISC.
Please regard this as a very serious matter.
