The father of a Table View High School learner who was assaulted during a fight over a ‘packet of chips’, confirmed that he had to take his son for a medical examination after he started urinating blood.
According to IOL, the father discovered on Friday, July 30, that his son was involved in a fight with one of the other pupils outside of the school premises.
The initial report from the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) claimed the fight was over a packet of chips but the father of the victim confirmed that it was actually over a phone.
The father was left devastated when he noticed that his son was urinating blood.
Meanwhile, three pupils will be facing a disciplinary hearing. The victim will not be facing disciplinary action, reports News24. However, the victim has been called as a witness.
The school is dealing with the fight in terms of a disciplinary process, as well as trauma counselling which has been arranged for all of the pupils involved.
