Pupil in hot wa­ter af­ter sex talk

Sunday World - - Sunday Report - By Thuso Magano mag­a­not@sun­day­world.co.ca

A 16-year old grade 10 pupil has learnt the hard way about the dan­gers of un­de­sir­able posts on so­cial me­dia when a video of her ex­alt­ing the­p­lea­sures of sex made her an in­ter­net sen­sa­tion.

In the video, the pupil from Sikhu­l­ulek­ile High School in Ham­man­skraal is heard say­ing the fol­low­ing: “Bathong ke bolela ka selo se se monate. Gape sex e monate. Motho ge a le vir­gin nou o it­shenyetsa nako. (I am talk­ing about a great thing, sex is good, if any­one is a vir­ginin this day and age they are wast­ing their time.)

The pupil is say­ing this in a class­room full of other pupils, wear­ing her school uni­form. She goes on to graph­i­cally de­scribe the mo­tions of sex and thein­tense­plea­sure it givesher, be­fore shout­ing “Viva tes­ti­cles, Viva!” in Setswana. It seem­s­the video was recorded dur­ing a lunch break.

Af­ter the record­ing went vi­ral, a so­cial me­dia post claim­ing the pupil­was sus­pended for five years caused the video to trend, but Sun­day­World has es­tab­lished she was sus­pended for only five days.

Fol­low­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions con­ducted by the school, the pupil was asked to ap­pear for a dis­ci­plinary process.

The pupil, who can­not be named to pro­tect her iden­tity, was found guilty of trans­gress­ing the school’s code­of­con­duct, pub­lic in­de­cency and us­ing foul lan­guage and was asked to spend a week at home.

The girl’s dev­as­tated mother de­clined to com­ment.

Gaut­eng ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment spokesper­son Steve Mabona said it was not the first un­de­sir­able in­ci­dent that had hap­pened at the school.

“[The] util­i­sa­tion of a cell­phone in the class­room es­pe­cially dur­ing con­tact time is pro­hib­ited and, as such, learners should be mind­ful of what they record on their phones.”
