A teacher at Bishops Diocesan College, a private secondary school in Rondebosch, resigned with immediate effect after allegations of sexual misconduct with a pupil.
The 30 year-old female teacher, who is a former model, was a sports coach at the school. She allegedly had a sexual relationship with a Matric learner, according to News24.
The Weekend Argus reports that according to a source, the teacher sent threatening WhatsApp messages to the learner should he try to end their relationship.
Guy Pearson, principal of the school, said in a statement on Friday evening: “Bishops is currently investigating allegations that there has been serious misconduct by one of its teachers. The school takes this matter extremely seriously and requests the public to respect the dignity and privacy of those concerned.”
The teacher’s social medial accounts have all since been deleted.
This esteemed boys school has an enrolment of about 735 learners.
