Teacher quits after kiss­ing pre­fect

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Worldwide -

BLOEM­FONTEIN — A young teacher at Bloem­fontein’s Grey Col­lege whose in­ti­mate kiss with a school pre­fect came to light in a What­sApp mes­sage, has quit.

The woman re­signed after the in­ci­dent was re­ported to school au­thor­i­ties. She will stay on at the school un­til the end of the year.

She had ap­par­ently told sev­eral friends about the kiss in a mes­sage early this year, Netwerk24 re­ported.

A spat be­tween a num­ber of teach­ers sev­eral months later re­port­edly led to the mes­sage be­ing printed out and be­ing brought to the at­ten­tion of school au­thor­i­ties, who then started an in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The ma­tric pupil, de­scribed as a bril­liant stu­dent and good ath­lete, made a con­fi­den­tial set­tle­ment agree­ment to re­sign as pre­fect, which he has done.

The school ap­par­ently now con­sid­ers the mat­ter closed.

Some­one close to the teacher told Netwerk24 that she’d de­cided to leave Grey for other rea­sons long be­fore the kiss in­ci­dent came to light.

She ap­par­ently is go­ing to teach at an­other school. “She is go­ing to broaden her hori­zons,” Netwerk24 was told.

Grey prin­ci­pal Deon Scheep­ers con­firmed the teacher’s res­ig­na­tion. — Sapa
